Mrsrogue75 added a favorite at WWdN: In Exile

I also was home sick that day. I was sitting on the floor in front of the TV (also wrapped in blankets) watching in amazement as the astronauts and teacher were preparing to depart the Earth. I was glued. Smiling from ear to ear. Shushing my mother who kept insisting that it wasn't a good idea to send a teacher on a space shuttle. BLASTOFF! I was riveted! So stupidly excited! But then... wait... what... is that supposed to happen? What is that? Did the shuttle just...?!?!? I watched the news coverage all day and watched Challenger explode over and over and over. To this day, I can not watch a shuttle launch even when I know that it is not a live broadcast and everything went according to plan. I close my eyes and think of the Challenger crew and pray that this crew will make it home safely. I admire all the astronauts who did not let Challenger shake their faith and continue to be amazed that we can leave this Earth and make it back.
