This music was written for Christa McAuliffe, Space Shuttle Challenger Astronaut and teacher. Christa would have turned 67 years old on this birthday. This song was written the day after the Challenger exploded. This is her song, her story. She continues to view life through the message…the words…of this song. May all who listen to this song feel her presence, her love and her honor. She remains always a hero, a guiding star, a promise for what we may achieve and become. She resides in a proverbial state of awakening…creating, surrounding us all with unconditional love, as well as a deep and abiding love for this floating space ship, Mother Earth. Dare to dream, dare to believe…her message still sings on…we are in this together. The Earth is our home and we are all brother and sisters. I hear her say: “From where I stand now there is no difference.”
I slip the surly bonds and float on clouds above…I sing a brand new song. Please hear and sing along. For death is just an image of life yet unfinished. A path of life unending, God’s love ever attending.
Infinity…my life I see…in front of me…for the world to see.
Reach out and touch me.
I slip the surly bonds and float on clouds of love. I sing a brand new song. Please hear and sing along. Please hear and sing along…along …along
