What's Scott talking about when he says you made rocket launches fun to distract them from reality?
“When the boys were little, the world wasn’t exactly at peace.” Lucy looked out to her oldest boys playing outside, “The first time Jeff went to space, part of his mission was to disarm the spacemines left after the Global Conflict. Sure, space travel was much safer than when the first men went to space, but the mines, now they were dangerous things.”
Her gaze again drifts to her eldest boys that she so clearly remembered hugging close under the blankets when they had been so much smaller. She smiled sadly, “We used to pretend we were in mission-control, taking part in the countdowns and the final checks. Then we’d look at the stars and the planets, reciting as many facts as we could before take-off.”
“The boys were young, I had to shelter them from the risk their father was taking to ensure the peace in their future.”
