17. I am…

I am falling, the clouds are dashing past.
I had almost done it, I had almost done finished it.
The world was almost mine, I had almost made it.
I was going to be the first to fly.
I am, the woman who tried to fly the world, Amelia Earhart.
Amelia Earhart, 1897 to 1937, was an American pilot. She was the first female to fly solo across the Atlantic. In 1937, she attempted to fly around the world. She disappeared however, over the Pacific Ocean, never to be found. There are a lot of theories about what happened to her, but nothing is really known.
