Once we had people called "heroes." They weren't Hollywood or sports or recording stars. They didn't get rich. When their country called them to war, they went. When asked to risk their lives on the farthest frontiers of exploration, they went. When they saw opportunities to make their country better, they stepped up.
Remember that song, "We Don't Need Another Hero?" Well, we do. We need more people like this.
Godspeed, John Glenn
