Subject: [Officers] Space Day 2007
The crowd was large, enthusiastic, and makes you wonder what in the HECK
is the matter with politicians not understanding that this interest in
space is NOT limited to people who are old enough to remember who Neil
Armstrong is. They are not lily white. They are not exclusively
American. They are "every man" or "every person" is you insist.
The young man in this photo had a great time talking to Sunny Williams
(as did the others in the photos) and the T Shirt you see him wearing
while standing with his beaming family was his winning design in the T
The parents were jumping up and down clapping, crying their eyes out,
and in general, just beside themselves with emotion watching their kids
talk to Sunny. I understand why Rick can't even begin telling the story
without breaking up.
Thank you Frank and Sarex team for letting me hang out with you while
you did this.
