Another Hero, Gone

It was just a month ago that I had the exceedingly rare pleasure of shaking hands with Mercury/Gemini/Apollo astronaut Wally Schirra, and I’ve just learned that he passed away last night at age 84. He lived a remarkable life, to be sure, and he’s earned his rest.

The Earth is a poorer place today, as, this time, he won’t be coming back.

    I wrote about him on our BMW forum… yet another of my heroes gone…. not too many left now 😦
     
    And someone commented that our current generations don\’t seem to be providing new ones, not like when we were young 😦
