The end of our space shuttle program
I just watched the space shuttle go up and it will most likely be the last one I will see . I think it is a travesity and an injustice to the memory of our late presiden John F. Kennedy . He was the one that said by 1969 we will have a man on the moon and we did . But alas today marks the last of the space shuttle take offs and for me an end of a dynasty . What a shame it will be for our grandchildren to never see a space shuttle go into space . I think space is a frontier that we have only begun to discover and should do more to explore it . I think our government is giving up on space exploration and that is sad indeed . We used to be one of the richest countrys in the world and look now we are the laughing stock of the world . Now I heard this morning that most schools in Illnois are ending penmanship classes . Well my goodness what will happen to these children when they go to get their drivers license they wont be able to sign their name in cursive . Of course kids want things that are easier , but I think ending cursive writing is stupid to say the least . Your signature is one of ones identifying factors and yet the illnois school system chooses to take that away . Disgraceful if you ask me ... Just my humble opinion of course .
