Janitorial Tragedy 20 years in the making

This morning, while getting Abi ready for her first day of school, Caleb commented on the fact that it was 20 years ago that he was in the 3rd grade. Abi just smiled and then teased Caleb by responding "You've been alive for 20 years?!".

Caleb went on with his thought, and looked at me with amazed realization..."In just a few months it will be 20 years since the Challenger blew up"...

He walked away at that point, once again shocked at the passage of time.

I watched Abi's expression, and prepared to tell her what the Challenger was, but then she interrupted me with her own amazed exclamation as though she couldn't believe what she had just been told...

"...his janitor blew up?!?"
