How do you find the words to express the emotions of such a tragic loss as America suffered with the loss of the crew of the Columbia. Although the exploits of our astronauts and the space program in general has become considered mundane or ordinary by many people, we must not forget that these are OUR explorers into the unknown of space and science. The crew of the Columbia were truly heros before this tragic event and now are indelibly entered into the fabric and character of our nation.
Our thoughts and best wishes are with the families of the crew of the Columbia. The continuation of exploration and scientific discovery are the best homage we, as a people and a nation, can pay to their memory.
