In just a short 66 yeas we went from Kitty Hawk, North Carolina to the “Sea of Tranquility” on the moon. We were able to do this for many reasons, National pride, cold war paranoia, etc.. but I think it was humanity’s inquisitive nature that made it possible above all else.
Ever-since the Reagan administration we have been in a downward spiral, we no longer feel wonder at the mysteries of the universe–it seems a good chunk of the American people have decided that, “why bother” after the rapture ( scheduled for any day now ) Jebus and G-d will take us to paradise—-To me this is the American equal to radical muslim’s 72 virgins.
Freedom of the mind and strength of the heart is what can get us back on track if a singing Canadian astronaut is what inspires us then I say great eh! The future can longer rest on America’s, “we’re numb one” mantra, this time it’s all humanity or none.
