Dreaming about great things
Kyle Baxter wrote a moving tribute to Neil Armstrong. From One Giant Leap:
Let’s lay awake at night, dreaming up great things, things that could only be dreams now, and let’s build them. It need not be related to space; it could be related to an important advancement with renewable energy, or even with something as comparably small as re-creating education for this new century. But it must be something truly new, groundbreaking and meaningful, something that leaves you with the sheer joy of childhood excitement. Something that will make us better as a people. Let’s dream it, and let’s build it.
We’re going to see a lot of tribute pieces over the next few days. Don’t skip this one.
