Comments: Slipped the Surly Bonds of Earth

I will never forget that day it was so clear.
I saw it rising up in the sky here in Tampa and then realised it didnt look right,at that monet a co worker ran out of the Vet clinic, I worked at secreaming, that it had blown up.I was just smoking a cig looking at it stunned ,It was a bad day....A few weeks ago I saw a launch from Jacksonville and it looked awesome.
Cheers from Sunny Tampa

I guess we all have our own memories of that day. 19 years ago? Couldn't be that long ago... I'm not that old... am I?

I remember the confusion... the anger... the fear...

What I remember the most is the frustration... knowing, in the back of my mind, that they didn't have to die. It could have been prevented.

19 years, it seems like yesterday, I was so angry, their employers were like mine, putting production ahead of safety. That attitude cost a lot of lives in Aerospace as well as with my employer I think of all those lost often.

I saw it happen on television in class too, I was in fourth grade. We were old enoguh to understand what had happened. The teacher turnd it off after teh explosion, wanted us to work on our spelling words. Of coarse we all wanted to know what happened. The other fourth and fifth grade classes were still watching. The principal began going through the classes to talk with all the students. When He got to our classroom he made the teacher turn it back on. "WE learn nothing from tragedy by ignoring it." he said to her protests. She went home early that day and the principle stayed with us. (I never did like that teacher)
