Truth be told

Wernher Von Braun
Albert Einstein

The truth be told, I find the ones that I post about the human spirit and nature are fun to write but a challenge too. I believe that the human spirit can be a powerful motivator or a severe downfall if we aren’t careful. Time and time again the human species has made giant leaps forward followed by steps backwards.

When the great ones have been here there has been peace for the most part, followed by severe and dangerous steps backwards. Not all the great people of our times have been in the world of politics, they have been those who have been able to think outside the box.

If you look through history you will see a name here or a different name there that by themselves don’t mean much but when you put all the parts together, the picture becomes very different.

Here is a strange bit of information for you: Albert Einstein was a patent clerk in a small office when he wrote his theory. Wernher Von Braun wanted to be able to put a person in space. Both were German. What is the connection? The bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Albert Einstein had come to America when his Jewish beliefs put him in danger during the 1930’s. Wernher Von Braun was forced to work for the German Government at the time. When he saw that Germany was going to loose he went to the allies with the information he had about the V2 rockets and they brought him to safety.

Now you have two of the brightest minds working to find a way to end the war in the Pacific and history happened.
