In Memory of Sally Ride

By: GardenGrrl , 2:06 AM GMT on July 25, 2012

As a young girl I had very few women role models that made science into something cool, a place where smart girls become doctors, scientists, astronauts.
Then came Sally Ride.

She did what she wanted to do. She embraced being smart, goal oriented and tough enough to have the right stuff. She reached for the stars and touched them. She was a woman of few words so this tribute is for her.

Follow link Link and see an amazing video that could well be dedicated to an amazing woman.

I do not know the lady, but anyone who encourages children to look "outside the box" is worth remembering - May she continue to encourage the children of Heaven :)

Happy Friday!

I put this in LC's blog too:

When I was in school - not really that long ago, I did a report on Sally Ride, for a few reasons.

1) I love learning about successful woman who have done great things! She also set a fabulous example for young women everywhere.

2) We both lived in Encino

3) We are (were) almost the same age

She was an American hero in my opinion! May she RIP.
