Glad he lived to a good age.
Discussion is locked
under the images. These are dynamic and change with each viewing and appear to be interplay between those leaving comments about one another. The only easy way I see to get rid of them would be to capture just the images, re-post them on another site and link to that. That, however, would be some kind of copyright infringement. Blame it on my lack of tolerance for certain behaviors.
The top post was so good that I used that image and gave attribute along with link to the source. I'm a big believer in giving attribute but I hear you about the sometimes awful comments. Here we can do better.
My parting thought, let this be a discussion where we show gratitude, respect, or admiration..
I'd sent this to friends the other day.
Mercury capsule, Friendship 7, so many childhood memories watching these guys go into space at start of the 60's, the entire world was watching on TV. In the 70's I visited the Air and Space Museum in DC and got to peer through the smaller window and lean on and touch the capsule while there. Now they have it behind glass. At that time you went up some steps and could look directly through the windows and lean on it, touch it, if you wanted. It truly was a special moment to feel that connection, the touch, however short and tenuous it was.
Thanks for all the pride, the wonder, the amazement, not just of a child, but the entire world, John Glenn!
All our heroes die, eventually.
