    oh wow, i didn’t realize you lived so close to that. even here, where i am, we were very much aware of how tragic this was for everyone. it certainly does show how at these times, a community is formed. you don’t necessarily have to live there to feel the loss and understand the heartache of those involved.
    i’m doing the hunt today as well.

    Amazing how quickly that corner filled up with flowers, wasn’t it. Excellent example of community.

  • 7. Guppyman  |  June 10, 2006 at 9:26 am

    That was the strangest thing…. so many people, but so quiet… and all the flowers and signs and just outpouring…. It was amazing

    Wow! The community really did pull together through that.

    Oh yes…… makes me take a few moments and contemplate what life really is!!—*gooseflesh*.

    And the sad part is, it takes a tragedy like this to make a country bow and thank the people who serve the community and country –instead of doing it daily!!! (and I’m a guilty one too).

    This is just a great way to show your community. Thank you.

    My Saturday Photo is up.

    OH MY, It’s so heartbreaking to see these pictures and to know that the crew of the space shuttle were killed, it’s really great that the community came together for weeks to mourn them.

    I love the pictures althought it’s really heartbreaking to read and see the words on the pics.

    And thanks for allowing me to copy and paste your t13!hugs

    Your pictures show how caring a community you live in. They did a wonderful memorial.

    I didn’t realize you were a fellow Texan. 🙂

    I love these pics. It makes me sad that sometimes it takes a tragedy to bring a community together. But everything happens for a reason, right? Great photos – tugs at your heart’s strings.

    Another true meaning of community. You grabbed some great memory shots of something that forever changed so many people.

    I didn’t know if I should comment here or blogger…
