The pilot was trying to make an emergency landing when the plane crashed.The six victims of a Sunday plane crash just east of Tuscaloosa Regional Airport were remembered by friends and acquaintances as giving, kind and accomplished. Dr. Michael Perry and his wife Kim were the kind of people who took care of a widow and her nine children when they'd never met them. He sent his employees on vacation to Destin, Fla., every year and paid for the whole trip.
Dr. Austin Poole commuted to Clarksdale from Oxford every day, and he would often discount procedures for people he knew might not be able to pay the entire bill. His wife, Angie Poole, was cheerful and friendly, and both were well-liked in the Clarksdale community.Dr. Jason Farese, a former Vanderbilt University baseball player, and his wife, Dr. Lea Farese, met in dental school in Jackson and were known as fun-loving and generous. They were well-loved by the Oxford community, as well as their hometowns of Ashland and Pearl.
Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.
Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.
Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
