“Never limit yourself because of others’ limited imagination;
never limit others because of your own limited imagination.“
- Mae Jemison, Astronaut
Today we celebrate two people: Astronaut Sally Ride and you.
Yesterday we were saddened to learn that Sally Ride had died after a long fight with cancer.
In 1983, Sally Ride broke a major barrier in becoming the first American woman to go into orbit. Nine years later, Mae Jemison followed in her footsteps not only as a woman astronaut but as the first African American woman to go into space.
In honor of Sally’s legacy, and in honor of all the women who imagine the impossible and make it real everyday, we ask you to make a pledge:
I will never limit myself because of others’ limited imagination; I will never limit others because of my own limited imagination.
