I'm going to have to go off topic to talk about what I saw today.
I've seen some amazing things in my life.
Here are some examples of things I have seen (aka commence brag fest)...
--love him or hate him, it was an awesome thing to see--
Landing Beaches and Cemetery, Normandy, France
It was so exciting to stand outside in a huge group of people, all staring at the sky, waiting to see the shuttle. Even more exciting that we didn't know exactly where it would come from or when.
Then someone yelled "There it is!"
And it was CLOSE. Not a little blip in the sky - skimming the tops of buildings close.
Not only was it amazing because of the historical significance. It was amazing because it's just so unbelievable. It looks like something someone dreamed up in photoshop.
A spaceship bolted to a jumbo jet???
Escorted by a fighter jet??????
Breathtaking, goosebumps, once in a lifetime.
And sadly, never again.
Landing at Dulles airport...
Anyone else see the shuttle?
What's the most amazing thing you have ever seen? What's the craziest place you've ever been?
