I know you and me didn’t exactly see eye to eye on certain things.
I mean, we don’t see eye to eye on just about anything.
But dad, I come to believe that I got it in me to be somebody in this world.
And it’s not because I’m so different with you either.
Its’ cause I’m the same.
You know I can be just as hardheaded and just as though.
I hope I can be as a good man as you are.
I mean sure Dr. Von Braun’s a great scientist, but he isn’t my hero…”
