Hello and welcome to my short,
but very sincere tribute
to the crew of the Ill-fated Columbia.
As you know the Columbia exploded over Texas
on February 1st,
2003 and all seven people onboard were tragically killed.
It's my sincere prayer that these brave people didn't feel anything,
or suffer one bit.
This isn't the first tragedy NASA has had,
where lives were lost in an accident.
Way back when NASA had the Apollo program,
they had Apollo 1 on the launch pad when a fire broke out inside the capsule,
killing all three of the men inside.
Next Apollo 13 was on their way to the moon,
when they encountered life threatening problems onboard their capsule.
The crew of Apollo 13 had to use the L.E.M.
to keep them alive,
and never made it to the moon.
Thank God they were able to make it back to earth safely.
Then they started with the Space shuttle missions.
17 years ago the space shuttle Challenger exploded,
not even three minutes into their flight,
and all seven people died.
Now 17 years later they had the Columbia,
which was preparing for re-entry and exploded.
Another seven people died.
This brings the deaths to 17 people, and they're only the one's I know about.
I have a couple of links from NASA,
including their Space Images Archives,
and these links will be here for you to see.
I have to wonder when NASA is going to say,
"Ok enough is enough. We have a problem here.
I also can't help wondering how many more lives have to be lost,
before someone ----------somewhere takes a very long,
and hard look at NASA's record.
It's not very good in my book.
The Astronauts in the Columbia Spaceship!

All of these brave men and women
made the ultimate scarafice,
them I say:
Your gone from here now,
but you will never be forgotten by
Your work on earth is done,
is the time for you to have the eternal
and peace you definetly earned.
I would like to ask everyone who see's
and the people you
share it with to please do me a favor.
I would like to ask that you offer a
small prayer for the Columbia crew,
their families and their loved one's
We need to let these people
know that we're thinking of and
and that we really do
care about them.
Well that's all I have for this webpage.
I want to thank you for taking the time,
to come by and visit my page and I hope
you will come back again.
You know I think the late Rev. Jim Jones
said it best when he said,
don't remember the past,
condemned to repeat it.
I'm wondering if NASA remembered the
with the accidents they've
had so far.
Once again I want to thank you for
visiting my humble webpage.
God bless America!!!
God Bless You
