jdperkins74 The Challenger 7 Crew
"They had that special grace. That special spirit that says, give me a challenge and I'll meet it with joy...The future doesn't belong to the faint hearted it belongs to the brave. The Challenger 7 crew was pushing us into the future and we will continue to follow them...the crew of the Space Shuttle Challenger honored us in the manor they lived their lives...We will never forget them nor the last time we saw them, this morning as they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye as they slipped this early bonds of earth to touch the face of God." #PresidentRonaldReagan when speaking on the #ShuttleChallenger disaster 29 years ago tomorrow. We don't often remember things like this because, like Reagan said, we've grow used to wonders in this life time and we forget the struggle and hardship that accompanies these successes. Remember Sharon McAuliffe, Gregory Jarvis, Judith Resnik, Dick Scobee, Ronald McNair, Mike Smith, and Ellison Onizuka #NASA #Challenger7 #RonaldReagan #USHistory #GreatSpeeches

professor_nyembo African Americans had a long tradition of military service. African American men, free blacks and slaves, fought alongside whites at the battles of LEXINGTON, CONCORD and BUNKER HILL and at major other engagements throughout the REVOLUTIONARY WAR (1776-1781). About 5,000 African Americans joined the CONTINENTAL ARMY. the ALL BLACK MASSACHUSETTS COMPANY (nicknamed the BUCKS) were an all black militia who operated in Boston. At the end of the war, Massachusetts Governor John Hancock presented a silk flag bearing its emblem, a leaping buck against a pine tree to the company "as a tribute to their courage and devotion in the cause of American Liberty".

taraross1787 On this day in 1981, Ronald Reagan welcomes the Iran hostages home! Fifty-two hostages had been held in Iran for 444 long days. Problems with Iran had been decades in the making. The country’s former dictator, the Shah, had obtained power with American and British help. He was generally pro-Western, but he’d faced troubles within his own country. In early 1979, he was exiled from his country and asked us for asylum. He had cancer and was seeking treatment. Jimmy Carter granted the request for humanitarian reasons. Iranians were furious! On November 4, 1979, revolutionary Iranian students stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and took hostages. The Carter administration tried economic sanctions, freezing Iranian assets, and embargoing oil. Finally, in April 1980, Carter approved a military attempt to extract the hostages. The move was risky, and it ended horribly when a sandstorm caused helicopters to malfunction. Eight soldiers were killed. Carter continued negotiations for the “innocent victims of terrorism and anarchy.” Finally, on #RonaldReagan’s inauguration day, Carter reported to Reagan that the hostages would be released. #Reagan did not want an announcement made until the hostages had cleared Iranian air space. He was finally able to announce their release at an inauguration luncheon. Carter later left to meet the hostages in West Germany. Reagan received them at the White House on January 27. His diary entry for that day was simple: “Ceremony on S. Lawn to welcome hostages….Met the [families] earlier. Now we had in addition the [families] of the 8 men who lost their lives in the rescue attempt. One couple lost their only son. His widow was also here. I’ve had a lump in my throat all day.” FULL STORY: Facebook.com/TaraRoss.1787 #TDIH #AmericanHistory #USHistory #history #liberty #freedom #throwback #historybuff 8h
