    There are some events that you will never forget seeing. 9/11, Kennedy's assasination and funeral, Landing on the moon; and the Challenger disaster. Seems hard to believe that this was 29 years ago today:

    I was home from a 1/2 day of school and I remember making sure I got home soon enough so I can watch the launch and I remember sitting there on the recliner (Dad wasn't home :)) and my jaw just dropping.

    I remember them all. Remember sneaking out of Kessler AFB to see the Moon Landing. Remember Challenger and how everyone in my office cried. Also remember the cortege for President Kenney and watching live while second plane hit the tower. Those things will stay with you forever.
