I haven’t posted anything about the loss of Columbia until now. This was included in my weekly Palm Digital Media newsletter. I was touched and wanted to share it here, with you.
Out ride the sons of Terra, Far drives the thundering jet, Up leaps a race of Earthmen, Out, far, and onward yet –
We pray for one last landing On the globe that gave us birth; Let us rest our eyes on the friendly skies And the cool, green hills of Earth.
The Green Hills of Earth – Robert A. Heinlein
