25 years ago today, I was in Mrs. Giles’ 8th grade English class when our principal came over the loud speaker. He announced in a choked voice that the space shuttle Challenger had exploded and that all seven crew members had perished. The classroom was silent as we all absorbed the tragic news.
In honor of the anniversary, Legacy.com has created a special memorial site: http://www.legacy.com/legacies/space-shuttle-challenger-disaster/
We invite you to visit the site to share your memories and pay tribute to those we lost on January 28, 1986.
