Today (Jan. 28) marks the 29th anniversary of the Space Shuttle Challenger breaking apart almost immediately after it launched.
To say that I remember that day - where I was, and what I was doing when I heard the news - would be a lie. I was three years old (almost four). I probably barely had any idea what was happening. But, I DO very vividly remember that it happened, and that's all thanks to a very special episode of my favorite childhood TV show, "Punky Brewster."
