Seven New Stars
A PAW Tribute to Columbia's Astronauts
Columbia's crew waves good-bye as the astronauts prepare to board
the space shuttle on Jan. 16
We at PAW would like to express our sorrow
at the loss of the seven astronauts, scientists and patriots who perished
in the Columbia disaster.
We admire them for their bravery, salute
them for their commitment to bettering all of mankind, and mourn them
sincerely after their final voyage.
We hope that in time, the pain will fade
and a new generation will be inspired by their sacrifice to reach new
heights of scientific exploration.
Since the beginning of time, mankind has
looked to the stars for inspiration and guidance. Now, whenever we look
towards the vast expanse of sky, we will forever be reminded of these
seven new stars.
On Feb 1, 2003 the space shuttle Columbia was lost on re-entry. Our prayers
go out to these seven gallant heroes that sacrificed their lives in the
name of humanity and world peace......
