With the loss of another shuttle, today is another one of those ‘Where were you when it happened’ days. Like a lot of people remember what they were doing or where they were when they heard about JFK, Elvis, and 9/11.
I think the first major event in my life was the loss of the Challenger shuttle. I was in junior high school at the time, but I was home sick that day. I was laying on the couch watching it as it happened. Since my son has been born there have been now two major events, both of neither my son will be able to recall as he’s still to young to comprehend what’s going on.
