January 28, 1986

Album: All Things Bright & Beautiful (2011)
  • Ladies and gentleman,
    Today is a day for mourning and remembering
    They had a hunger to explore the universe
    And discover its truths and
    They had that special grace
    That special spirit that says give me a challenge
    And I'll meet it with joy

    The crew of the space shuttle challenger
    Honored us in the manner
    Of which they lived their lives
    We will never forget them
    As they prepared for their journey
    And waved goodbye
    And they slipped the surly of earth
    To touch the face of God. Writer/s: ADAM R. YOUNG
