History In Your Lifetime Blog Hop January 14-15 2012

Welcome to the "History In Your Lifetime" Blog Hop January 14-15 2012.

You should have gotten here from Jennifer - .  If not make sure you start at the beginning with Jamie - .
Jamie - .  It was difficult to choose one event to use one event for my project.

My project today is a scapbook page about the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster.  I remember it so vividly.  I was in the hospital with Toxemia and Preeclampsia expecting our son William.  What a shock to watch the events that day unfold live on TV.  Those losing their life that day were Christa McAuliffe (Teacher in Space), Dick Scobee (Commander), Mike Smith (Pilot), Ron McNair (Mission Specialist), Judy Resnik (Mission Specialist), Ellison Onizuka (Mission Specialist), and Gregory Jarvis (Payload Specialist).

This is a list of all of the projects in our Blog Hop today:

Wonderful layout about the disaster. Why is it that the sad and terrible things stand out in our minds forever, not the happiest events? So sad.

Hi, Just got around to hopping! I remember that - one of the girls in my class got really upset because her mom had been in the running (obviously didn't get it) to be the teacher on the shuttle.
