Thankful Thursday

"Thankful" may seem like an odd title for today's post.  We are honoring the crew and of the space Shuttle Challenger which exploded 30 years ago today.  We are Thankful for the brave men and women who have participated in our country's space program.



Thank you Teacher-in-Space payload specialist Sharon Christa McAuliffe; payload specialist Gregory Jarvis; and astronauts Judith A. Resnik, mission specialist; Francis R. (Dick) Scobee, mission commander; Ronald E. McNair, mission specialist; Mike J. Smith, pilot; and Ellison S. Onizuka, mission specialist. You were all very special people and will always be remembered.

The head peep remembers that vividly. She was in Florida, but not close enough to watch the launch. A very sad time.

Ohhhh mom says she remembers exactly where she was and what she was doing and who she was with when she heard about this tragedy.
She and her coworker had just returned to work with a BBQ lunch and they were sitting in the conference room at work eating. Mom's co worker was a native of Florida too
