Challenger: 22 years later...

On January 28th, 1986, the seven member crew aboard space shuttle Challenger lost their lives 73 seconds after launch. I was too young then to realize the impact of that mission and the disaster. Today though, as an educator, I asked my students to pause for a moment and reflect upon their own goals. To think of where they see themselves in 22 years and how America still can learn from triumphs as well as tragedies in our past. Our students are the future. I only wish that they continue to work hard and dream as big as the seven aboard that ship 22 years ago.
