I just heard on the news that Sally Ride died today. I vaguely remember the details of her historic space flight but I can recall my feelings of pride that a woman was going into space. I also learned tonight about her foundation, Sally Ride Science. What an amazing woman. Not only was she brave enough to accept the challenges in her own life but she was also able to make an extra effort and extend that knowledge and support to the next generation. And she did this all without fanfare or desires for attention. She is an example of a true hero.
