To infinity and beyond

Wednesday C1 and I sat in my bedroom and watched the shuttle launch. I had the tv on in the background while i answered emails so i called her in the room to sit with me and watch. The whole time we both watch the launch with excitement but i was slightly distracted. When i was in 3rd grade my mom let me stay home from school so we could watch the Challenger launch. We sat in my bedroom, me on the floor and my mom on the bed combing my hair, we gleefully counted downa nd watched it take off, and then i froze when Challenger exploded. I remember that day vividly and i remember my mom crying and hugging me.

After counting down to the launch with C1, I held her tight in my arms and secretly wished nothing would go wrong.
