Sally Ride, the first American woman in space – and also the youngest American in space – inspired generations of women who were blown away by the pleasant-seeming, normal-looking, and completely brilliant and driven young woman who burst onto the national radar in 1983. She broke one of the toughest glass ceilings there was – and American loved her for it. Especially American women.
Another one for Women's History Month: Sally Ride, the first American woman in space.
So sad; what a loss. :-( "Sally Ride, the first American woman to journey into space, died on Monday [7/23/2012] after a 17-month battle with pancreatic cancer, her foundation announced. She was 61. Ride first launched into space in 1983 aboard the Challenger shuttle, taking part in the seventh mission of US space shuttle program. US President Barack Obama called her a 'national hero and a powerful role model' who 'inspired generations of young girls to reach for the stars.' "
We are terribly saddened to hear Sally Ride died today 23/7/12 age 61, after a battle with pancreatic cancer. As the first American woman to travel into space, Sally was a national hero and a powerful role model to women everywhere. "Sally Ride broke barriers with grace and professionalism – and literally changed the face of America’s space program,".The nation has lost one of its finest leaders, teachers and explorers.She inspired. She will be missed, but her star will always shine brightly."

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature.... Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. ~Helen Keller Hellen Keller you are awesome!!!
I wonder if Helen Keller knew how really amazing she was? To be able to get through all that she had in life, is nothing short of a miracle. Who has ever accomplished anything to the degree that she has....she started with absolutely nothing! If you think about it, all that she was missing was EVERY form of communication. Just try and do this yourself, if only one of them. Helen, you really drive home the point of how key / important communication really is! What a "huge" role model... Angel

December 1, 1955 – In Montgomery, Alabama, seamstress Rosa Parks refuses to give up her bus seat to a white man and is arrested for violating the city's racial segregation laws, an incident which leads to the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Contrary to popular legend, Parks did not keep her seat simply because she was tired. Instead, it was a deliberate act of civil disobedience meant to draw attention to unjust treatment.
On this day in 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Her action precipitated the Montgomery Bus Boycott. | For Harriet
