I was alive on this fateful day, but I was only 19 months old. My parents have told me about watching it on TV, and my sisters have told me about seeing it in school. My oldest sister (who was a freshman in HS at the time) was watching it live in her science class. There was shock in the room after the explosion. Just and unreal sight that would sadly be repeated in 2003.

I was in class watching on TV, because of the teacher on board. It was a big deal to all the teachers and us students. We saw it explode and everyone was quiet, then my teacher turned the TV off and just started teaching the next lesson. Like 3rd grade or something. Sad

I was in grade school and I remember being sent home as soon as it happened. When i go home I just remember sitting in front of the TV watching the footage not believing what I kept seeing. It was a very sad day, and back then going to space was still a big deal! Today, none follows the launches and no one really knows what we are even doing up there. It's a disgrace to the astronaunts that died that day!

What a sad and tragic event. I was staying at my Grndmothers house, home "sick" from school (just faking it of course). My aunt lived 5 houses down the street from her and she was there at the time. I remember wakin up that morning and thinking "Ah, I pulled it off again...."Sick" and staying at Gram's house". So I was home alone and got myself a bowl of cereal and settled down in front of the TV hoping to catch a cartoon or two. Much to my dismay, every local channel was carrying the shuttle liftoff. (I was in the 5th grade at the time, so I was not that into news or current events). Just as my attention span was about to give up on the coverage and search for more "entertaining" telelvision, I witnessed the horrible event unfold before my eyes. I quickly picked up the phone and dialed my Grandmother down the street and (I distinctly remember the words I spoke) "Gram, turn on the TV. Something`s going really bad"....That was
