On The Dream RocketThursday, August 20, 2009
In her speech, Jennifer said:
...And when I learned the history of the Saturn V – how the odds makers put 1000-1 odds against putting a man on the moon before the end of the decade – how it was considered an “impossible dream’….
Well… that’s where the idea of Big Dreams and the Saturn V came together.
In reading about the history of the space program, I am struck by how many of the key players were inspired when they were 12 or 13. They had this dream of space flight and they made it happen.
If we can get people to dream big dreams again – who knows what we may accomplish in the future?
The Spirit of the Saturn V teaches us that when people collaborate on an important goal and put aside their differences, nothing is impossible! Anything can be accomplished.
So whether your dream is:
* Going to Mars,
* Curing cancer,
* Being the first in your family to go to college, or
* Finally getting clean water for your village
Whatever your dream is – if you work hard at it and collaborate with others – truly, anything is possible.
