A Beautiful and Inspiring Quote from an Astronaut

The path from dreams to success does exist. May you have the vision to find it, the courage to get onto it and the perseverance to follow it.
--Kalpana Chawla, Columbia astronaut

This quote is from Kalpana Chawla, the deceased Columbia astronaut. She wrote this in an email before she died. I thought it was so poetic and inspirational. May her tragic death and the deaths of the others unite us as a people, as a nation, and as a race.

Well said, by both her and yourself.
That is indeed very beautiful.

Minx: Thank you. I actually got that quote originally from the April 2003 edition of Glamour magazine. I have since gone online and have verified that this is indeed what she wrote.

Great parting line,
Sad loss.

Why is it only after a bad event, does everyone get their shit straight?
Good people are hurt by bad decisions.

Too many deaths to learn simple truths

Too many times the bright and able are those that meet untimely deaths. I suppose it all evens out, and it just seems that way, but thats what I can't help thinking.

Meanwhile, the jobless, paint-sniffing, child-beater Jethro just got his wife pregnant again.

Rogue,

The simple truths are always right there, stairing us in the face.

Unfortunately we are usually too blind to see them unless we are shaken out of our shells and masks by death and tragedy.
