Sally Ride – rest in peace

Sally Ride on the U.S.S. ChallengerToday, we lost Sally Ride, the first American woman to travel to space. She was only 61. Sally died of pancreatic cancer. She was truly a pioneer and proof of the continual tearing down of barriers in American society. We have a way to go but those who seek a barrier-free society must stand on Sally’s shoulders. She will be missed.
