Discovery, do you copy?

April 16, 2012. Discovery says one last goodbye to the Kennedy Space Center and flies to its new home.
Dulles International Airport
Ever since the 1960's discovery of space shuttles, dreamers around the world expanded and develop their career hopes.

When asked: What do you want to be when you grow up?
They said: Astronauts! 

Although some changed their mind as they discovered new talents and fields, some kept the hope that someday they would have such opportunity. But recently, it seems that the hope has become so thin as some believe that the future does not hold many spots for astronauts in the US. Although it seems that private companies are the first in line at the moment, I believe that there is still hope.

Si Dios quiere
If God Wills
Amy's story: Three days ago, I checked my e-mail to see if I had won a ticket to see the space shuttle arrive. I didn't win. Two days ago I received a message from a friend inviting me to come watch the space shuttle arrive at the airport. One day ago, I watched the most amazing landing of a Boeing 747 carrying a space shuttle. Today, I am still trying to take it all in.

If motivation was like a rechargeable battery, then the motivation I am carrying right now is fully charged!

I thank God for the miracle of surprises. It held a very powerful message this time:

Don't give up.

Specially when the future looks like a blur.

This yellow balloon girl is not going to give up when the tide gets high. I might be that student who always leaves the class labs last, takes the full class time to finish exams, asks the very basic questions, etc, but I am alright with that.

Now lets Discover. All in the Glory of God!

-Ahh meee
