Kids are their typical over-excited, but unaware. I’ll try to keep it that way much the way I did of 9-11.
I’ll say what everyone else is saying: Columbia is lost. I remember Challenger – I wasn’t one of the kids who saw it on TV that year in High School, but i remember vividly not believing it when I was told. I think it has more of an impact now – considering I can only imagine the hell the families of the lost are going through. I know, to some extent, how I would feel, and wish that upon nobody. My heart goes out to them, for while we will call it a tragedy, and the fallen heros, their families have to go through the day-to-day, and the pain and ache that comes when someone close to you is taken suddenly from you.
