O God, full of compassion, Thou who dwellest on high! Grant perfect rest beneath the sheltering wings of Thy presence, among the holy and pure who shine as the brightness of the firmament unto the soul of who has gone unto eternity. Lord of mercy, bring them under the cover of Thy wings, and let their souls be bound up in the bond of eternal life. Be thou their possession, and may their repose be peace, Amen.

    I wish I had picked up on it being the 10th anniversary so I could have posted “High Flight” (the poem both Reagan and Bush cited during the shuttle disasters in their administrations) in my Quick Takes.

    • I think it got a lot less publicity than it should have. The whole thing caused a big change in teh US space program, from which it hasn’t really recovered yet. You know, you can still post it. Or post it next Friday, when the anniversary of the memorial falls.
