We had seven heros among us, the heros doing wonderful things.
If it wasn't for the accident, we would have those heros today.
They died too soon, and left behind plenty.
Family, friends, acquaintences, and even strangers will remember them.
The second horrific accident since 1986.
Wouldn't you know, seven people as well on the Challenger.
We will always remember the heros that gave their lives for us.
We will remember the heros of the Space Shuttle Columbia.
