Discovery Liftoffs Safely (and finally)!!!

The following is from NASA:

"With a rocket's red glare, Space Shuttle Discovery lifted off from Kennedy Space Center in a spectacular display of sound and light befitting of Independence Day."

I am so pleased for NASA and for the crew of STS-121. The lift off went off without a problem. Some debris was seen falling away from the fuel tank, but it doesn't seem to be a concern.

I have the crew and their families in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless them and bring them home safely.
