Watched in stunned disbelief tonight as the Space Shuttle disaster unfolded on our TV screen. May God grant them rest and help their grieving families in their hour of need.

All the way from the Emerald Isle.

As sad as their death may be, they died doing what they wanted to do. I will remember their courage for taking the challenge that at best is extremely dangerous. Our prayers are with their family for they will miss their love ones.

Thank you, Steve, for placing the wonderful photo of the astronauts on this thread.

President John F. Kennedy said...

"We choose to go to the moon...not because it is easy but because it is hard."

He placed a huge challenge in front of NASA in the early 1960s
when he announced the goal to put men on the moon by
the end of the decade. NASA met this most audacious goal.

None of us know if we will live "long" though we do have
the choice to live "large".

By all accounts in the news, these seven astronauts all lived life LARGE, not just in their chosen profession but in their communities and with their families.

They are, indeed, the best of the best of the best.

Let us leave the political rhetoric out of this. While i respect your view this is not the place for it.

I don't think any of the Columbia Astronauts were killing each other, or making chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons. They died in a quest to promote mankind, not hinder it.
