other thing, Dad. Remember the day I left? You told me that every
man has a chance to be his own kind of hero. Well, I don't think
I'm ever coming home, so I won't get that ticker-tape parade and
doubt that I'm gonna have kids. So, I won't get a chance to be a
hero to them. But, I think I know what you meant.
I've got a strange life here, Dad. It's different, but it's my own.
I have people who rely on me, people I care about. People who mystify
me and people who have become allies - friends. And people who teach
me patience and people who teach me...other things.
Well, you said the time would come and I think it has. I had a job
to do and I am unafraid. That's what you said when they asked you
what it's like to walk on the moon.
You did good, Dad. You taught me well.
