When I first joined the military, I had never been off world before.  I saw no reason to go anywhere else.  I had everything I wanted at my fingertips.  Yosemite changed that.  The other worlds I traveled to changed me far more.  I’ve seen more faces, more cultures, more civilizations, of humanity out here than I ever imagined existed when I was a child.  I’ve seen so many, and I’ve learned to remember them all, so they are never forgotten.
