The Awe Factor

Posted July 27, 2007 7:23 a.m. EDT

What places, events and people in your life have left you with a sense of awe?

This question came to mind today as I was talking with Lynda Loveland about taking her three children to the beach for a vacation. I recalled the first time I saw the ocean. The jaw dropping moment for this mountain boy came when I was in the fourth grade. The place was Long Beach which is now called part of Oak Island. Coming up over that bridge, seeing the wide expanse of water and hearing the thunder of the waves.

When and where have you experienced a sense of awe?
