As a child at age 5....

When I was 5 years old, I use to sit outside and looked up at the stars while my parent's chatted on the porch. I wonder WHAT was UP there and what those 'glowing bright objects' were. I also had a vision of TRAVELING great distances and that vision came through for me when I joined the U.S. Navy and traveled around the World! (have visited 21 countries so far!) Through all this I have NEVER STOPPED LOOKING UP at the Night skies and I STILL look up every night to this date as if something is 'calling me' to look up. By learning from Earth's Past History (the Aztecs, Mayans, Egyptians, Chinese, etc. etc.) and watching the Science, History, NATGEO and Discovery Channels and of course JPL, Planetary Society and NASA, I am hoping that someday soon that WE will colonize MARS! TO ALL you Explorers out there, Keep on Truckin' and don't let Budgets Cuts keep you from doing what you strongly believe in and Love!
