Pastor’s Crossing

To the saints at Stone Mountain:
Mary Wallace “Wally” Funk has spent more time on the ground than
she ought to have. An excellent aviator, Funk was part of the Women in
Space program in the 1960s. Wally Funk and 18 other enrolled women
passed all the rigorous tests that the NASA men passed, yet not one
woman was chosen to fly.
Funk went on to accumulate 19,000+ hours and become a flight
instructor, training more than 3,000 people to fly. She also became the
first female air safety investigator for the National Transportation
Safety Board (NTSB) and the first female inspector for the FAA (Federal
Aviation Administration. Gender and the times in which we lived made
it impossible for Wally Funk to see outer space.
Enter Jeff Bezos and Blue Origin.
On Tuesday, July 20, 2021, Jeff Bezos, his brother Mark, teenager Oliver
Daemen and Wally Funk will go the edge of space, float in microgravity
for a couple of minutes and then return to earth.
I am saddened by the opportunities denied any person strictly because
of gender…or race…..or socio-economic standing.
Fly, Wally Funk, fly!!!!!
Glad the tomb is empty,
Pastor Farmer
