RIP Sally Ride

NPR’s report on Sally Ride’s passing. NASA’s commemoration of her life.

It’s hard to explain what Sally Ride meant to me growing up.

In short, she represented the possible. As a young girl who so often felt the limits, Ride showed me early on that you could break them.

In that way, Sally Ride – the idea of her – is this important piece of confidence deep inside me.

RIP, Dr. Ride. And thank you. Thank you so much.
