Space Shuttle Endeavor, Last Flight

This morning my family and I  witnessed history when the Space Shuttle Endeavor graced us, minutes before landing for the last time in Los Angeles, Ca.  It brought me back 30 years when I was small and my dad brought me along on a news assignment to Edwards Dry Lake to photograph the Space Shuttle landing.  I can still feel the shattering thunder of the sonic boom when Space Shuttle Columbia re-entered the atmosphere that morning.  Today I reminisced with my daughters about that day and felt a very familiar thunder from Endeavor's F18 escorts and the B747 she was perched atop. 
 Emotion and tears completely consumed me as the air crackled over the southern California sky.
