Column: The hike

Last Saturday, I took part in the South Carolina State Guard's eighth annual Hurricane Hike. This was my fifth hike and, each year, participating always brings me back to my first -- the year an extraordinary occurrence changed my thinking forever. There are no coincidences in life, just reminders of a greater purpose. In honor of this year's event, I'd like to share a column I wrote about what happened on my first hike.

Column: Remembering Challenger

The race to the moon. Another thing today's kids miss. Was there anything more exciting than the race to put a man on the moon? It started on a cold October night back in 1957. Mom and Dad and sister, Brenda, and I stood out on a frosty lawn staring into the sky looking for Russia's Sputnik. There through the crisp clear night we saw it, blinking as it orbited Earth. If only we could have seen what Sputnik would lead to … weather satellites, GPS, telecommunications, and footprints on the moon.
