On The Other Side

Sally asked her mother where the sky started. Carol said, “On the other side of the clouds.”

“What’s on the other side?”

Carol wasn’t sure how to respond. Sometimes kids just wanted a simple answer, sometimes they wanted more. She opted for the simple answer. “More sky, more clouds. Stars, at night.”

“Where are the stars now?”

“Sleeping. The stars rest during the daytime.”

“I’m going to go touch the clouds.” Sally ran off towards the trees. Carol knew her daughter would do just that: climb the tallest tree, reaching up as far as she could, then reach some more.

Lego is releasing a set of Women of NASA figures. This story is in honor of Sally Ride and all women who reach up.
