Bus Report #126
As I was having my tea and getting ready to leave the house, NPR mentioned that this week is the 20th anniversary of the Challenger explosion, which seems insane to me. I remember that day so clearly: sitting in Ms. McKinney's third grade classroom watching the launch on a wheeled-in TV, seeing the strange smoke, then Mr. Kaplan on the loudspeaker telling us what had happened.
The nervous laughter from some of the kids in the class. Not being able to sit still during the moment of silence. Trying to understand what it all meant.
20 years. Wow.
