My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the families of the
crew. Your children just didn't have the time it seems that
they should have had with them. I am sure it is so hard on
them anticipating their return and then there was nothing.
I feel so bad for you all, and can't believe how strong you
all are. May God Bless You.
I am praying that you will find some measure of comfort in
your time of grief. Your family members and friends made the
ultimate sacrifice doing what they love.

Dear NASA and America, here in Canada we have followed your
brave advance into space from Mercury through July 20th, 1969
and the moon landing and will on through tomorrow. I am saddened
by the loss of the seven Columbia astronauts and my heart
goes out to the families and your nation as a whole. Being
a child in the 50's and 60's your space intentions were seen
by me as a bold advance into a "brave new world"
of exploration and hope for mankind. I hope that this loss
to the space program in no way diminishes your collective
thirst for knowledge and understanding of the universe around
us. God's Speed America.

To the Columbia 7 - we shall never forget you. You dared to
go where most of us only dream of. You are forever in our
prayers and hearts.

Heartfelt sympathy for all the families, and to those brave
astronauts who must not die in vain. Please keep the space
program going, for all our sakes. God Bless you all.
I would like to express my sincere condolences to the relatives,
friends of these 7 heroes and to all American people. It was
a horrible tragedy. Everyone will remember these crewmembers
forever for their feat. They gave their lives in order to
make our future closer and more beautiful. Let's always remember
them. Their activities will be commemorated in the history
of our planet forever. Let God keep their souls.
I once watched a launch many years ago. It was a most wonderful
experience. I believe in the space program. I pray for the
crew and their families. As President Bush said, the crew
is home and safe and I thank them for their efforts to make
this world a better and safer place.

May the souls of the 7 brave adventurers of the crew of Columbia
now rest peacefully in the heavens, among the stars and may
the work they undertook, continue for the benefit of all mankind.
My greatest respect to these women and men, who gave their
lives for space-exploration.
