One not on the list that I love is StoryCorps, here is the description of the video I have chosen to share: “On January 28, 1986, NASA Challenger mission STS-51-L ended in tragedy when the shuttle exploded 73 seconds after takeoff.

The United Nations are working to transform the world by 2030, one of their goals is improving education worldwide.
The goal of a quality education is considered by most the one issue that would make an immense difference in people’s lives.
