Adios, space shuttle!! I know that you're just starting your last mission, but I'm going to miss you!!! You've been with me almost all of my life (I remember watching space shuttle launches since early junior high, at least), and you've always been a symbol (along with all of your astronauts) of the great things that America can do with our collective intelligence, bravery, persistence, and willpower!!!
Anyway, I know that the mission isn't over yet, but I'm already starting to miss the shuttle!
