Thirty years ago today, Christa McAuliffe took the ultimate risk to try something new…to be the first civilian in space. Her spirit of breaking boundaries and living a passionate life inspires me daily. Because of her, so many other children and adults have dared to dream big, to reach for the stars, to take that risk to try something new and to live life to the fullest. I am so grateful for her time on earth and how her reach continues, even in 2016. I honor you, Christa.
