Considering I can't remember what I did yesterday, it's strange I can remember 20 years ago to this day.

I was walking down the corridor of the dorm in my college. A friend stuck his head out of his dorm room and invited me to watch the shuttle launch with his roommate and him. The three of us watched on a little, cheap, 4 inch black and white screen as the shuttled exploded. Strange to think that was 20 years ago.

May the souls of those 7 be at peace.

"Flashbulb memories", the 'where were you when...' ones, seem to stick. I can close my eyes and still see that Y shaped cloud. My daughter says she can too...it's the first one she can remember. My first was JFK...

I was sick with the flu for the entire week... I saw the video, the analysis, the commentary and everything more times that I can count.

I'm still deeply haunted by it, but know that these folks knew the risks and still got in that seat. I know I would go if the chance arose.
