20 years ago on this day, I remember watching the lift off of The Challenger. And watching as it exploded!
It was like it wasn't real at all. We just sat there in total disbelief!
And then 3 years ago on February 1st, Columbia broke apart over Texas.
and of course, we can't forget the fire that killed the 3 man crew of the Apollo 1.
Let's pause and remember these brave men and women.
