Many years ago, you were the one to call me at Truman Hospital, to inform me of the space shuttle's loss. You knew how it would affect me....and broke it to me gently.
I am here at the condo in Florida, watching AND LISTENING to my laptop.....NASA TV....listening to the earth to shuttle communications....LIVE..... waiting to walk outside and look up...see them streaking overhead and hear the sonic boom.......when it soon became clear......they...the shuttle... weren't answering ....suddenly.
I knew. I knew right away....long before they began showing the pictures. It jolted me back to my call room.....as you and I were on the phone....so many years ago.
You and I will take this just as hard, as we did then.
