John Glenn, the 1st American to orbit Earth, has died at 95 

WASHINGTON (AP) — John Glenn, whose 1962 flight as the first U.S. astronaut to orbit the Earth made him an all-American hero and propelled him to a long career in the U.S. Senate, died Thursday. The last survivor of the original Mercury 7 astronauts was 95.

Glenn died at the James Cancer Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, where he was hospitalized for more than a week, said Hank Wilson, communications director for the John Glenn School of Public Affairs.

John Herschel Glenn Jr. had two major career paths that often intersected: flying and politics, and he soared in both of them...

     I almost met him where I was working....I was in the lobby of the Marriott Hotel in downtown Cleveland back in '95, when then Senator Glenn came in with his aides. My mind flashed back to that long-ago morning, sitting on the sofa with my grandfather, watching Colonel Glenn speed off into space. I started over towards him, but my supervisor reminded me that it was against policy to bother guests.


If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

That would explain the flags at half mast.

When I was in school, I have memories of the school I attended airing his flight, which was broadcast on TV, in the classroom.

Rest in Peace. Glenn.
