CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – "In a spectacular and at times nail-biting afternoon launch, the space shuttle Discovery blasted off on one final mission today (Feb. 24) to cap off its prolific 27 years of spaceflight.
Amid clear skies and warm temperatures, Discovery lifted off at 4:53 p.m. EST (2153 GMT) today from Launch Pad 39A here at NASA's Kennedy Space Center.
For those watching, get ready to witness the majesty and power of Discovery as she lifts off one last time," Lindsey replied.
We watched from Daytona Beach Shores; surrounded by hundreds of people wanting to experience the last launch. It was a spectacular sight. And the perfect end to our own launch of Intent Heals.
Today, eight incredibly special women joined me in an Intent Heals workshop designed to teach each of them how to take the Intent Heals Journal out into the world. We came together as a collective, committed to a united vision, and brainstormed on how to share the "power of intention and transformation" with others.
It was a magical day with an unimagined ending: the final lift off of Discovery! The synchronicity of events did not go unnoticed; each of us were launching in our own unique ways celebrating the 'community' we had found in each other.
