I was home sick (probably faking it like usual) from 7th grade. I was so excited I was about to watch my first live launch ever. Only my mom was home with me. I was sitting right in front of the TV. It started off amazing....then...went wrong. I knew immediately something wasn't right. I slowly turned around to look at my mom. She asked me, "Was that supposed to happen?" I slowly shook my head back and forth, feeling dread and sadness well up.
I remember it like it was yesterday. :(
