Twenty years ago we lost the Challenger. Many bloggers have shared their thoughts regarding that moment. As I think about that day I have two thoughts to share.
First, I remember very clearly being in my AP History class when the announcement was made. I remember that when I got home and turned on the television there was nothing but news about the Challenger and what had happened.
I have one other memory that is tied into this but I really can’t remember when this second event happend. I am not really sure why I associate the two because one is very serious and the other is not.
That associated memory is hearing the following words:
Buckwheat Has Been Shot. I can’t explain the relationship, just that it exists. I feel a little guilty about it, but I’d be lying if I said that I don’t associate the two.
