20 Years Later the Space Shuttle Challenger, “slipped the surly bonds of earth” to “touch the face of God.”


Its been twenty years and we can still hear the words of President Ronald Reagan and envision the images of that fateful day. One of those moments in time where one remembers what they were doing at that moment January 28, 1986.Challenger explosion

The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye, and “slipped the surly bonds of earth” to “touch the face of God.” 

Full address can be seen here.

We remember Christa McAuliffe, Dick Scobee, Mike Smith, Ellison Onizuka, Judy Resnick Ron McNair and Greg Jarvis.

As the blog, Oh How I Love Jesus  states, Yet this was not just another day: it was supposed to be a day for teachers and students to be proud of. For seventy-two seconds, it was.”
