Really? I was in my 7th grade Algebra class when that happened - they announced it over the intercom, but my class kept on plugging away.

They did. It was brief - like 10 minutes or so, but they did. They also halted my science class after the Challenger disaster, which we were watching live.

I found out between classes, but they didn't stop school or send us home.

I was a senior when the Challenger disaster happened. One of the science teachers at my high school at the time was a finalist in the "teacher in space" contest that Christa McAuliffe wound up winning to participate in that flight.

My school didn't miss a heartbeat, heard about it through the grapevine in class.
Although I was in college at the time for that one.

Still a huge difference between a disaster and political brainwashing.

I was in the 7th grade when that happened. Remember it like it was yesterday. The shocked looks on all of our faces was unbelievable. That was when my science teacher decided to end class early, rather than try to teach a bunch of shocked 12 year olds.

Yeah. Christa McAuliffe's backup was from Idaho. I think she finally got to go up in just the last year or two.

They announced it on the intercom while everyone was in the hallway between classes at my school, but they did pause classes for that one for 10-15 minutes, IIRC. Happened two days after my 18th birthday. Damn, I'm getting old.
