Wordless

I like to refer to myself alot as an adventurer, an explorer.
But today I was reminded what a true aventurer is.

Everyone in the building was gathered around the big projection screen this morning.
Silent, raptly staring.

Praying.

And the smoke began.
And the fire burned.
Seven explorers launched themselves into the void.

We watched, still silent, still praying.

"Main throttle go!" and we exhaled.
"Solid boosters ejected" and our hands began to unclench.
"Tank has separated" and we cheered, we yelled, we wept!

God bless you on your journey, Discovery!!

That's all the words I have.
