Dear Friends, it is a time to come together, not apart. To dig deep and rebuild. To face uncertainty head on; with courage and clarity. Just do what you can do. Winter always comes just before Spring. Be well, Dan

(Lyrics below) This chapter of America's manned space program is nearly closed. We here at the Kennedy Space Center wanted to say thank you to our larger space family, and to those who supported us along the way.

We all did what we could do to accomplish our goals and get our astronauts and orbiters to space and then safely home... Each of us brought something different, but together we found ways to overcome the challenges and build a future together.

To a person we feel blessed to have worked on Shuttle... You will see that in the smiling faces within this simple video. It is an indigenous effort - We wrote, played and recorded the song, then put together the video... and are grateful to share it with you.

We did what we could, and in these times of uncertainty, we ask you, wherever you are in the world, to just do what you can do to make your life and your community better... progressing day by day... no one can ask any more than that. That's all our country asked of us, and we did our best. Thank you America for giving us that opportunity. It was a good ride.

We All Do What We Can Do - Lyrics

Be still our beating hearts, we take another breath.
And every time we launch it scares me half to death.
And I know this, yeah I know this, you feel the same.

A sigh of relief comes over me
When we're two minutes in and drop the SRBs.
And I know this, yes I know this, you feel the same.

And we all do what we can do
To make this bird fly on wings.
And spirits soar, yes they soar,
When three main engines sing.
And I see you feel the same.

Orbit after orbit she spins in outer space,
She is dancing through the cosmos, biggest smile on her face.
And we're proud, loud and proud, to see you shine.

Standing by the runway they call us Convoy Ops.
You can hear the engines roar when her wheels come to a stop.
We all do what we can do to bring you home.

And we all do what we can do,
And live what others dream.
The bonds we knew,
These memories, forever they will be.
And I can see you feel the same.

When the crew comes out they wobble 'round the bird,
Our family in blue. Sweetest booms we've ever heard.
And I know, yes I know, we feel the same.

And we all do what we can do,
And live what others dream.
The bonds we knew,
These memories, forever they will be.
And I can see you feel the same

Safety watches out, and Quality inspects.
Engineers write the paper that's driven by the Techs.
Have you seen the magic they can do?

Flow managers make sure the puzzle pieces fit.
Schedulers keep runnin', they never seem to quit.
We all keep, we all keep pushin' on.

And we all do what we can do
And live what others dream.
The bonds we knew,
These memories, forever they will be.
And I can see you feel the same.

To all those who designed her and built her piece by piece,
Pride brought her home to launch from KSC.
And I know this, yeah I know this, you feel the same.

For thirty years we've launched her, did the best we could.
We learned from our mistakes, think we did pretty good.
And I know this, yeah I know this, you feel the same.

We all do what we can do
To make this bird fly on wings.
And spirits soar, yes they soar,
When three main engines sing.
And I see, I see, you feel the same.

And we all do what we can do
To make this bird fly on wings.
And spirits soar, yes they soar,
When three main engines sing.
And I see, I see, you feel the same.

And I see you feel the same.
