We were sent home that morning after the crash at the Pentagon and on my drive back to Daytona Beach, I realized that our world had changed forever. I will never forget all of the lives that were lost on that horrible day. To me, this was the Pearl Harbor of our generation.
When we were allowed to go back to work at the Space Center, we soon found out that our jobs had been eliminated because the tourists would no longer be coming to the Space Center in the numbers that they had been.
That was the end of my career at Kennedy Space Center and the end of a dream come true.
