We Stopped Dreaming pt. 2
The 2nd video to my previous post WE STOPPED DREAMING. This one is just as powerful as the first, if not more. For me this video puts goosebumps on me and makes me well up a bit. Thoughts below the vid.
NASA brought our country, our world inspiration, motivation, and all hall pass to dream. Dream to infinity and beyond. You might have read the first things to cut in schools when budgets get low are typically the art programs. MUSIC, DRAWING, DESIGN, PAINTING….Cut. This is huge beyond most of our comprehension. Mr. Holland from Mr. Holland’s Opus said it best…..”IF YOU CUT THESE PROGRAMS WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO WRITE ABOUT??” Our willingness to see these programs including NASA fade from society saddens me beyond belief.
Art is defined as: the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance. Was NASA not art?? Art of the human spirit to push ourselves and discover more? To boldly go where no man has gone before! Us American’s have some real masterpieces to our name in the way of NASA missions. Things that nobody did before us. If we can pretend to fast forward one thousand years from now, what do you think America’s early accomplishments would be?? Going to the moon. I could rant and rave about this more. I posted this because it means a great deal to me that we continue to think about how we are inspiring the world to continue to dream.
Let me know what you think about this video, this topic, and art programs of all kinds being cut.
