It is hard to believe that this happened so many years ago. I remember being at the rectory that day, taking a sick day from teaching at Bishop Noll because I had such a sinus headache only to discover a day later that I was actually nursing a case of pneumonia.
I was watching television when, all of a sudden, I saw the Challenger blow up shortly after lift off. What a horrible sight.
I pray for those who were lost as well as those who were lost in NASA accidents throughout history.
