When I was a kid I had to wear glasses, and my optometrist was this guy. He invited me to the launch, but my folks wouldn't let me go.

Because it was a school day.

I never have seen the shuttle launch, and now I never will. So parents, a lesson. History is more important than history class.

Agreed 100%. I've been the victim of such as well, so I try to be that dad everyday.

Great story. So true. I would love so much to see a space shuttle launch. Really hope USA gets back with it, maybe with SpaceX or some company.

We've ditched school for launches many times, including last Friday. Launch was cancelled but the beach was still awesome.
