On February 1, 2003 the world was witness to the second disaster to befall the shuttle program. Once again seven brave souls were lost in the effort to learn more about us a species and this gloriously special place we call Earth.
Once again the world was stunned, once again we felt pain and once again we endured.
Let us remember a few things on this day:
The astronauts were doing something that they loved.
All of them understood the risks they were taking and still chose to go.
Mankind does not grow without risk and in some cases sacrifice.
We must remember them as the people they were, brave, loving, curious and adventurous. They are true heroes.
