We Remember: January 28, 1986

The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in w No More Jealousy hich they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye and “slipped the surly bonds of earth” to “touch the face of God.”

~ President Ronald Reagan, January 28, 1986
