Space Shuttle Columbia
I have a habit of leaving my television on all night. It’s my alarm clock for the next morning. Thus, I usually wake up to the morning news. Sometimes that’s ok. But other times, it can be quite disturbing. This was such a morning. Sadness came over me when I heard that Space Shuttle Columbia had blown to pieces over Texas. It also made me think of where I was 17 years ago when I heard that Space Shuttle Challenger exploded. To be exact, I was on my way from gym to accounting class in high school. The whole thing was such a shock. While this is a little easier to deal with, I feel for the families and their loss. May they take comfort in the fact that the astronauts on board were serving their respective countries and died doing what they loved.
