In honor of the seven brave souls who lost their lives on the Space Shuttle Columbia on February 1, 2003.

Remember Columbia

Seven Souls

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
