The Wright Brothers

by Kevin from Arcadia

The Wright Brothers are true heroes. They had an impressive life, accomplished some heroic deeds and have made me think. Wilbur and Orville Wright are my heroes.

The Wright Brothers’ life was full of experimenting and inventions. Wilbur was born on April 16, 1867 and Orville was born on August 19, 1871. They opened a bicycle repair shop in 1893. Wilbur died on May 30, 1912 and Orville died on January 30, 1948.

There were many heroic acts Wilbur and Orville did. They built a bicycle repair shop. The Wright Brothers made a kind of printer. Lastly, they built the first airplane in 1903.

Learning about the Wright Brothers has inspired me to ponder. I am surprised that they were the first American heroes of the 20th century! It’s cool that they made a kind of printer and the first airplane. It’s sad that Wilbur died by typhoid fever.

Two great heroes that were in this world were Wilbur and Orville Wright. Learning about their lives and heroic deeds has given me much to think about. They are heroes.
