A Real American Hero
I can't wait to tell my kids about the time I met a real American hero, the astronaut, John Glenn. "I was about your age, or older and he lived next door to your great grandparents." I'll say, "He was one of the first men to orbit the Earth and one of the oldest, in an old tin can they launched a hundred years ago." And I'll tell them what he told me, "The sky isn't the limit anymore, you young pioneers, the sky isn't the limit anymore."
