We have stopped dreaming. All my life I've looked up at the night sky and wondered; When are we going to be up there? When will star trek, the show I frequently watched as a child, become reality? I watched the video of Neil Armstrong landing on the moon countless times in the schools I was in. My eyes were always glued to the science channel growing up, wide with awe and a hope that one day, those beautiful, vast galaxies that I saw on the television screen, would be in our grasp. I dreamed so many times of looking out the window of a space ship, in a trance as I gazed out at the beautiful stars before me. When will this become reality? We could have possibly been there already... where is that ambition, that dream so many of human kind shared? Where did it go? I cried, many tears when I saw this video...because watching made me feel like seeing those galaxies up close and personal just slipped a little farther away. But I have not forgotten. I've not stopped dreaming big dreams of being among the stars one day... I hope that I may experience this in my own lifetime. I do not want to go to my grave, wondering if human kind will ever rise to the stars. When my time comes, I want to KNOW, that we will be up there.[link]
Who out there, still dreams of being up there? Who out there, wants to see this become a reality? Who still wants to be gazing out the window of a spaceship with tears in your eyes as you look at what human kind, could accomplish?
