Space exploration captures our imagination and admiration. The shuttle trips into space inspire the average person because it makes space travel seem within reach. The loss of the shuttle yesterday is a great tragedy to many throughout the world. The loss is especially hard on the families, friends, and co-workers and my prayers go out to them. I pray they will grieve, remember these people vividly in their minds and conversation, and ultimately be at peace with themselves. The pain will go away.
