George Bush Junior NASA statement
This morning brought terrible and great sadness to our country.
The Columbia is lost, There are no survivors.
... READ THE NAMES
Because of their courage

The cause for which they died will continue... Or journey into space will go on.
In the words of the phrophet Isaiah...
... Because of his great power and mighty strength
The crew of the Space Shuttle Columbia did not return safely to Earth but we can pray they are all safely [missed word, home?]
NB: The rhythm of the three-minute speech did not make notes easy. I will post transcript later.
