Challenger

Today is the 30 year anniversary of the Challenger tragedy. I remember being in early childhood classes and all of us sitting down and watching the launch, mostly because all of the teachers were excited to see another teacher go into space. Things did not turn out as planned.

This is the one event in my life that I sometimes use to differentiate myself from the people younger than me. Those who are a year or more younger (I'm 35) have no recollection of witnessing or what they were doing during this event. It is a tragedy that was watched by many, similar to the assassination of John F Kennedy or the falling of the World Trade Center.

I think this is a good moment for all of us to look back on out lives and think back on the history we've seen during our lives. No links in this article for now, as I'm still on the road, but everything in here is pretty easy to look up on Google. I'll run some edits this weekend of this post and add a bunch of links to various articles that are interesting.
