Fancy Friday Frontiers

“The pioneers gave up their safety, their comfort, and sometimes their
lives to build our new west. They were determined to make the new world
strong and free – an example to the world. Some would say that those
struggles are all over. That all the horizons have been explored. That
all the battles have been won. That there is no longer an American
frontier. And we stand today on the edge of a new frontier.

The frontier
of unknown opportunities and perils. Beyond that frontier are uncharted
areas of science. Unsolved problems of peace and war.

Unconquered
pockets of ignorance and prejudice. I’m asking each of you to be
pioneers towards that New Frontier. My call is to the young in heart,
regardless of age.

Can we carry through in an age where we will witness
not only new breakthroughs in weapons of destruction,

but also a race
for mastery of the sky and the rain, the ocean and the tides, the far
side of space, and the inside of men’s minds?

All mankind waits upon our
decision.

The whole world waits to see what we shall do.

fail that trust, and we cannot fail to try.” ~John F. Kennedy

  1. Love it! I already have a kink in my next, but am feeling a “Blog Frontiers” post coming on. Does that mean I need to learn how to add a link?:) Oh, the brain synapses required to be a pioneer. Laura Ingalls must have been a genius!

  2. Vernona Joe says:

    The picture of that cute little blond girl looking like she could blow my head off in a snap was is a tad unsettling.

    That aside, thanks for the opportunity to ponder the frontiers, in my own world, I need to explore.

  3. My hubby loves off-roading, hunting, shooting sports, and generally outdoor activities. Maybe this is why he loves Colorado so much!

    Have a great rest of your trip!

  4. What an amazing vacation! I am quite sure that would be my son’s dream. Guns, horses, more guns, and a 4-wheeler just his size. Enjoy!
