Bob Ebeling was one of the engineers on NASA’s Challenger shuttle. On the 30th anniversary of the Challenger disaster, NPR interviewed Ebeling, and he confessed that he still blamed himself for what happened.

NPR listeners, his fellow engineers, and NASA officials responded to his story. (See http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/02/25/466555217/your-letters-helped-challenger-shuttle-engineer-shed-30-years-of-guilt?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=npr&utm_term=nprnews&utm_content=20160225) Ebeling’s story is an example of the importance of both repentance and forgiveness in our lives. We hope he finds peace in his final years.
