25 YEARS SHUTTLE CHALLENGER, "TOUCHED THE FACE OF GOD"
Michael Smith, Dick Scobee, Judith Resnik, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Gregory Jarvis, and Christa McAuliffe. Seven American heroes who will forever be remembered for their courage and dedication to our country and the quest for space exploration.
In his stirring message to the Nation that tragic evening President Ronald Reagan united our country in mourning remembering the seven as he closed his memoriam with these words, "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 the journey and waved goodbye and "slipped the surly bonds of earth" to "touch the face of God."
As we remember twenty five years later the brave crew of the Challenger I leave you with this video of the memorial service for the seven. God bless their families and their memory.
