Hero Gone

Sally Ride died today.  For those of you who don’t know, she was the first American woman in space.  In my late teens she was the person I looked up to the most.  Suddenly science was fun, not just something I HAD to study.  I think I learned more about the planets, the solar system and the universe in the two years following her flight than I had all through school, because now I wanted to learn it.  R.I.P Sally Ride.  You were one of my heros.
