In honor of the seven brave souls who lost their lives on the Space Shuttle Columbia on February 1, 2003.
Seven souls in the morning sun went soaring through the sky
Unaware that on this day they were about to die
For some it was a life long dream that had at last come true
They were doctors, pilots, scientists, each with a job to do
Each one brought a unique talent to this courageous band
These seven chose to risk their lives for the benefit of man
In horror we viewed a spiral of white against a sky of blue
With numbness we said a prayer for this noble crew
As these seven gallant astronauts went sailing through space
They left the surly bonds of earth and met God face to face
The STS-107 crew includes, from the
left, Mission Specialist David Brown, Commander Rick Husband, Mission
Specialists Laurel Clark, Kalpana Chawla and Michael Anderson, Pilot William
McCool and Payload Specialist Ilan Ramon.
