A proud feeling
Have you watched something and felt that feeling of pride swell up in you? Last night, my wife and I were standing in a parking lot waiting for a certain thing to happen. And then, at 10pm as the news predicted, we saw the Internation Space Station come out of the WNW and travel to the SE. My wife said then: “I’ve got that feeling of pride swelling up in me right now.” Strange as it may sound, it was an awe inspiring moment as we watched the station pass over head. After her statement I couldn’t help but think about Tom Hanks in the movie Cast Away, banging his chest, yelling “Look what I’ve created.” Yes, man is an amazing creature. I could have pounded my chest last night, pointed skyward, and yelled, “look what we’ve created.” We’re hoping the weather will clear today so we can get another glimpse tonight.
