I was at work and heard it on the radio. Fortunately was spared the trauma of watching it happen live on t.v. I remember Christina Macauliffe being a celbrity. Imagine, a high school history teacher is a national hero... seems like teachers are being blamed for everything now. What a difference 30 years make...
I would just like to say, looking at the Crew photograph, the diversity of the people on board. Sure, mostly white guys (who could afford college back then), but there's a black guy (can i still say that?), oriental looking guy, and 2 women, all looking happy... nobody seems like a "token" in that crew.
I remember the commercials on t.v. in the 60s/70s it was all about hands together around the world, all colors/genders etc. Even many t.v. shows up to the 80s was a mix of races. Now it just seems like everyone is at everyone else's throat for cheap "comedy" or so-called "entertainment" in the political arena.
No more diversity, now it is division. Everyone blaming everyone else for the world's problems. rant over. thank you.
