A family of nations
scan the horizon of a
sky torn with pain.
Clinging to the inspired
dreams of a chosen few.
Who accepted the unsure
invitation of the stars.
Life stories scattered across
the paleness of blue.
All gathered together
on the path of heroes.

Jay this is a fantastic tribute to not only the crew of this space shuttle but to all those who have lost their lives exploring the unknown. Tim
Jay, Well written, Well said and beautifully touching regarding those who didn't make it back to earth, but went home instead. Bertie Patano
A great tribute to the brave seven! Thanks.
Jay, Thank you for this touching tribute to our fallen heroes. I think there are a good number of spiritual lessons for us, to be had in this experience. We too are called out into the spiritual blue yonder, where the risks and rewards are great. Those who step out do not know all that they face, they just know that they must go out. It may be (and should be) that our experience will be the same as theirs, that of a living sacrifice; that great progress is made, we bear new life, and that God receives the Glory. John 12:24
