What do I do? I am so sick of being alone. Not having someone else who can share my company. No one to go to when I’m alone or feeling down. Everyone else has had someone at one point. Felt the joy of another human’s touch. But not I. For I have yet to feel the warm embrace of the opposite sex. Still with no idea what a simple kiss is like. And yet there are others who partake in far greater bounties than I can ever imagine. Worse yet, they lack intelligence and haven’t the slightest idea what they have. They take things for granted and don’t have a care in the world. But it is all fine in the end. For there is an eternal balance to everything that happens. They may have their forbidden fruit, but it is that very thing that has poisoned their minds and made them oblivious to the truths of life. The hidden wonders that can only be learned over time. Between the two I prefer my scenario. I may miss out on wonderful bounties now, but they become available to everyone eventually. And I am very patient. Besides, by waiting just a little longer I can understand things now that will take them years to even think of. I count myself lucky. If not in society’s eye but in my eye. Because I know that in the future everything will work out for the better. Such is the way of things to always have a balance. One day I will be with that person. That one special someone to share my life and happiness with. So, what do I do? Well, I am going to wait. Not forever, but for that opportune time when I know I will be able to change everything. I will wait and endure the status quo to one day experience the balance. I have told you what I will do. Now, what will you do?

I heard about NASA and like, 'Oh, that's kind of interesting', then wonder like other than space exploration, like what you do? And, learning about the impact that NASA can have on our next generation and what Apollo did for our country. I mean, in the '60's, we were able to land a human on the moon with that technology, despite a growing race with Russia and all of the politics going on during that era: Kennedy's assassination, we were able to complete that, in that secured American preeminence in science and technology for decades to come. I certainly believe that, and the benefits we got from that are... You can't count that. In learning a little bit more about that and how astronauts have had the opportunity to represent humanity for good and bringing together countries in a way that politics and alliances cannot do. When you talk to some of the Apollo astronauts who went to the Moon, and they did their international travel, the comment, the feedback they would get from people would be 'We did it. We did it together.' It wasn't, 'You Americans did it.' It was, 'We did it and it was powerful that countries could come together and see that as a human accomplishment. So there's something about space that takes away those borders, because when you're up there, you don't see these distinct borders between countries, you just see a lot of blue and a lot of land. And, you see how fragile the planet is, So once I learned a little bit about that type of impact and that you can have a huge impact on the next generation of explorers, of scientists, of people who want to be a better version of themselves, maybe I could reach out to those kids, just like me, who are scared, tired, who don't think they can amount to anything. Who don't think they're worth anything. If I can reach out to them, and let them know that, Hey, it doesn't matter where you're from, With the right attitude, or the right hard work, if you get up every time you fail, you can amount to something and you can do positive work. You can leave a good impact, a positive mark for our world. That meant a lot to me, and that's when I put my name in the hat and wanted to be an astronaut, because it was completely consistent with my goals that I promised Mikey Monsoor, Marc Lee, Ryan job, a long list of our brothers who are not here with us today, that I would, for the rest of my life, do something to impact positive good in our world.
