Franklin Chang Diaz The Pride Of Many Countries!

Today May 5 Th 2012 three dedicated Astronauts entered the U.S Astronaut Hall Of Fame. Mister Franklin Chang Diaz is one of them, he is the pride of many Countries, Costa Rica (his native Country) , Venezuela (where he grew up) and the United States Of America (his adopted Country).

His words resonate in the minds of many people around the world, his model is never stop dreaming and is the advice he gave to Costa Rica's people. He says his achievements will not stop him to continue to better himself and produce more advances for humanity.

The Director of the space center Mister Robert Cabana was in charge to present Franklin Chang and commented that he did not expect to see so many people, and then when he saw what the attendance was like, he realise that having someone like Franklin who has made so many Countries proud at once, is more than a reason to bring people to the hall.

It was a magnificent celebration as one can imagine, mister Chang was emotional and gave thanks to his mother and father and to Nasa, for offering such a prestigious nomination, in the background he could see some Costa Rica's people who celebrated with chants of his name, and waved Costa Rica's flag.

His family also celebrated with him, this so important and so special occasion, his mother Eugenia Diaz, his daughter Senator Sonia Chang and his brothers were so excited and supportive during the ceremony.

Mister Chang's accomplishments are his entrance into the Hall of Fame, and that he was the first Latino-American to enter space. The other Astronauts Mister Kevin P. Chilton and Mister Charles P. Precour were so humble and so proud of each others accomplishments, this only added to the event's meaning and made it even more important.

The celebrations continued in private according to Nasa's protocol but the taste of pride and the fine moments lived between the Astronauts, their families and friends, will resonate in the minds of all of us.

What a treat, what grandeur did this three Astronauts display, what glory for humanity and what pride for the rest of us to know we are in the company of such minds and souls. May life bring more of this moments for you guys, I am so proud personally of the three of you, every time someone brings this type of glory to a Country we all need be thankful and proud.

I have to add, Franklin, you have made our Country so proud, you made possible for little Costa Rica's boys and girls to dream of the sky in a different way, you made possible for Costa Rica's people to join with you the hall of fame. I Thank you!
