Thank you for this.
My chances of getting up there are rather slim!!! It is great to see, and almost feel the experience of it all. The few qualified people who actually get to experience this unique environment, are generous enough to try as best they can, to share it all, with us grounded mere mortals.
The impressive technologies that allow Man to reach for the stars, are possible because of thousands of individuals, of all races, who come together in peace, to help us evolve and conquer this beautiful, but dangerous frontier.
I envy them, I thank them, I wish them all long and fruitful lives, because... when they succeed...I succeed.
Can you just imagine... if for one year... the countries of the planet, would refrain from spending a single dollar, on military equipment, and spend it on space research... how closer to our goal of exploring the galaxy we would be. A dream maybe, but very accomplishable.
So many good people are trying to advance Man towards bigger and better things, while some are more interested in Man's destruction.
I hope Man can overcome this challenge, because we stand to lose it all.
Our sophisticated electronic communications devices are serving the wrong end. Instead of bringing us together... they seem to be separating us. We need to change that... we need to reassure the world of our intentions.... we need to come together and share the wealth... we need to supply water... we need to feed the hungry... we need to bring PEACE not WAR to all the nations.
Imagine... at this very moment...an Einstein-like kid... just starved to death... because WE forgot it. What a loss... what a shame.
