A hearth-wrenching thought I felt tonight
All I can think about is the fright
Means of transportation crashing into the land
Ode to Reba McIntires Band
All the tragedy's that happen in air
Oh My God...This isn't fair!!
The Challenger crew took an uncertain chance
That's why Garth Brooks wrote "The Dance"
All the Pilots flying high in the sky
Some served our Country, only to die
This is for flyer's who've passed away
Your in my heart, I'll always pray
You've officially reached the Golden Shore
Now, you'll wear your wings forever more
(THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE HIGH SCHOOL POEM'S WRITTEN IN 1991)
