RIP Sally Ride

She passed today after a long bout with cancer at 61. She really inspired me as a kid, so she’ll be missed. :(

Bummer, but at least she didn’t get blown up in a shuttle disaster. RIP, Sally.

She was truly an inspirational figure, promoting science education (for both girls and boys, but focusing in later years on girls). I know her sister from when I was a kid, and the Ride family produced some truly exceptional women. For those of you who are religious, please remember them in your thoughts and prayers.

Wow, she was truly inspirational growing up in the 80s.

Had no idea she was a lesbian either.

She wasn’t always a lesbian.

Yea, for awhile she was an astronaut.

I know I sent her on a trip to the moon.

Was her middle name Alice?
