We Haven't Forgotten, Have We?

No, it's not the anniversary of this event, but as I was reading through the book of Isaiah today, I found tucked into chapter 40 a copy of the speech that President George W. Bush addressed to the nation when the space shuttle, Columbia, disintegrated upon re-entry into the atmosphere on February 1, 2003. President Bush quoted from Isaiah 40:26 the following:

"Lift your eyes and look to the heavens. Who created all these? He who brings out the starry hosts one by one and calls them each by name. Because of his great power and mighty stength not one of them is missing."

President Bush continued:

"The same creator who names the stars also knows the names of the seven souls we mourn today. The crew of the shuttle Columbia did not return safely to Earth; yet we can pray that all are safely home."
