Making history

making history.
as if a pencil was launched over the empire state building,
turned around mid-way, only to land
on its eraser at the same place from
which it launched.
to believe that a woman was behind the first sucessful 
launch of scientific instruments into space, the only woman in 900 engineers
at North American Aviation.
she was the technical lead for a new fuel.
hard to believe,
how many of us know her name?
Mary Sherman Morgan. 
All accomplishments, 
all deserve celebration
and notoriety.
