The NASA Space Shuttle Challenger catastrophe was my generation’s JFK moment – that is – most people can recall exactly where they were and what they were doing when they learned of the explosion in which all seven astronauts died. I imagine the same goes for 9-11 too.

For me it was in a hallway between periods at Southwood Middle School located in southeastern Miami-Dade County.
