I saw this picture and I felt many emotions. I’ll let you ponder it a piece then I’ll tell you what I thought. (H/T Gizmodo)
At first I thought it was a very cool yet very surreal picture. Then however, I saw something else. Here you have two school age kids playing basketball while not caring that the space shuttle was being pulled by. This was literally a once in a lifetime experience and they didn’t care. It was like being gut punched because I realized if the space shuttle passing by didn’t attract these students’ attention, then how can a teacher in a classroom attract it?
Admittedly this picture might be posed or fake. Even so, I think the message it sends is real.
