The Space Program! I remember well the 60’s when Russia and the United States were involved in the Great Space Race. I remember President Kennedy vowing that the U.S. would be the first to put a man on the moon and I remember the excitement about that endeavor.
Today I read that all efforts are aimed at finding out if there is life on Mars, and I have to tell you that I could care less. I’m sure that will shock some people, but I really don’t have any interest in finding out the secrets that Mars may hold for us as a civilization.
Why? Simply because I have my work cut out for me just living life in Earth. I have a family that depends on me. I have a career that is important to me. I am much more concerned with living a life that I can be proud of, and providing love and comfort to my friends and family.
Mars may indeed hold secrets, but the secret to life here on Earth, for me, is to live a Simple Life and be the best person I can be.
