    Do you remember where you were 25 years ago when the Challenger exploded?

    I can't believe it's been 25 years !! I was sitting at a reception desk answering phones at Cline's Auto Sales in Murray, Utah. One of the salesman came running into the showroom yelling for someone to turn on the TV.

    1 year earlier, in 1985, on todays date the song "We are the World" was sung for the first time.

    And the modern US coast guard was created on this day in history, in 1915.

    (they always bring "this day in history" on my local morning news)

    I was gathering up packages to deliver to the High School when the news broke. I took them inside to the school office and gave them the bad news. They hadn't heard yet.

    I was on duty at Subic Bay naval base in the Philippines. I remember not feeling much of a connection to it at the time, it seemed very far away.
