25 Years Ago...

25 years ago - January 28, 1986

I remember watching Christa McAuliffe's parents, and the loved ones of the other astronauts staring uncomprehendingly at the catastrophe unfolding before their eyes.

And I pictured myself as one of them -- perhaps an alumnus of one of Christa McAuliffe's classes, -- trying in his own way to "reach for the stars"...
