and overwhelmed. Today, we
stand mute. Today, we stand in
shock and disbelief. And we ask
ourselves, "Did it really happen?'
After the moment of disbelief,
comes the harsh truth, the verity;
yes, it happened. Fathers will not
come home. Mothers, sisters,
brothers will not come home
anymore. All we are left with is a
memory.
In spite of everything, we .must
and will go on. We cannot go back
and live our lives in quiet desper-
ation. We must go'on till the end
of time. We must go on to greater
and more noble conquests. We
must go on to greater and higher
quests. We must go on and reach
out to a faraway star and conquer
the Unknown. Our children and
grandchildren will follow our
path in life that is beautiful,
more serene and more meaning-
ful. Let us pray that their sac-
rifices, which ended in a ball of
fire, will be the catalyst for more
knowledge and wisdom. We pray
that their lives were not sac-
rificed in vain. Their lives will be,
for generations to come, an inspi-
ration and a spirit of rededication
to the principles by which they
lived and died.
We must and we will probe into

the Unknown and return trium-
phant. We pray that all future
probes will be successful and all
our crew members will return
safely to Mother Earth, to family
and friends and to all humanity.
Where would humanity be if we
had not explored Planet Earth?
Where would we be if we never
attempted to fly and chart outer
space?
The grief of the "Seven"
families can never be minimized.
Their grief is our grief. We can-
not minimize the depth of their
loss. The "Seven" died doing what
they did best. They died in the
process of making our world a
better and safer place to live.
In one split moment, a ball• of
fire engulfed and consumed the
brave, the courageous, the "Mag-
nificent Seven." Each and every
one of them came face to face
with God, Creater of Heaven and
Earth — Author of Life and
Death — Author of the Known
and the Unknown — Author of
the Mystery and the Mystique.
They dedicated and sacrificed
their lives. They exemplified the
best of our generation. They lived
and died as mentors and heroes.
We dare not forget their au-
daciousness, courage and faith.

Providing immediate service
to those in need is just one as-
pect of the many agencies
funded by the Allied Jewish
Campaign of the Jewish Wel-
fare Federation. Among their
other roles, agencies develop
creative new programs and
seek innovative ways to launch
these pilot projects.
The Person. Not many
eight-year-olds enjoy coming
home from school to an empty
house, sitting in front of the
television and wondering if
the sitter will show up. Mitch-
ell Nelson is no exception.
That's why the third-grader
loves going to the latch-key
program at the Jewish Com-
munity Center's Jimmy Pre-
ntis Morris' branch in Oak
Park. Funded for the first year
by a Skillman Foundation
grant, the program began iii
September and is serving
more than 30 children like
Mitchell, who attend various
days of the week.
What • does Mitchell like
most about it? "You're never
bored," he says. "There's al-
, ways something to do.".In fact,
Mitchell notes, he sometimes
isn't quite ready to leave when
his mom picks him up.
Among his favorite latch-
key activities are his carpen-
try classes and making new
friends. And, of course, there's
Mifid Judy, his latch-key
teacher, who he likes a lot.
Mitchell's satisfaction with
his after-school program is
probably exceeded only by the
delight 9f his parents, Stuart

Mitchell Nelson
one there for him," says Mrs.
Nelson. "Compared to last
year, this is a thousand times
better!"
The Agency. Founded
nearly 60 years ago, the
Jewish Community Center of
Metropolitan Detroit receives
funding from Federation's Al-
lied Jewish Campaign. Along,
with the Jimmy Prentis Mor-
ris branch in Oak Park, the
main building in West Bloom-
field serves people of all ages.
The JPM's latch-key pro-
gram is designed for
youngsters in kindergarten
through fifth grade. Organized
activities include gym, ballet,
craft.and hobby classes.
But latchkey is just one
part of a-ange of services and
programs that include a child
develiiipment center at both lo-
cations, health and. physical
fitness prhOins ,Wucational
classes\ 4c1 cultural events.
There is also programming for
singles, teens and
tweens,'as well as a range .of
