My wife and I were married in Dallas and honeymooned in south Texas, which included visits to Nacogdoches and the Houston Space Center. I teach about the Challenger disaster in my advanced tech writing class. I don’t have any deep thoughts or words of wisdom to offer… but I was watching CNN Saturday evening, and found the words of the Israeli ambassador to the US to be very moving. Thank you, ambassador Daniel Ayalon.
