Sometimes the amazing becomes the mundane, and it isn’t until it’s gone that we realize how amazing it actually was. What am I talking about?

The brother and I went to Oklahoma to visit family. During a long conversation with our uncle, we were talking about growing up in Florida during his days and ours.

One thing I remember fondly is every so often hearing the windows rattling and realizing that it was the shuttle flying over. It happened enough that it was a curiosity, but relatively mundane. Now that the shuttle is gone, and my niece and nephew aren’t likely to experience something like it, I realize just how amazing it was that we had a spaceship flying over our heads to land.
