This challenge is sponsored by P.S. Annie! It’s called 19-Somethin’, where participants answer a question about their past each day of September. Sounds like a fun way to spend a September, right?
- Do you remember where you were and/or what you were doing when the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded? This happened on 28 January 1986. Were there any big events going on in your personal life at the time?
I was walking through the living room of the home I shared with a mom and her two kids. They weren’t there at the time but the TV was on, I had just come in from work and the news was on. I was shocked and so saddened – and then the local evening news came on and they didn’t even mention the disaster!! I was so angry I called them! The station sent me a letter saying that they covered only local news and not national. That has changed now – with all our local channels carrying national and local.
I bought a copy of these magazines and still have them – the images are so powerful, at least to me.
