In Remarks by the US President Bush on the Loss of Space Shuttle Columbia

Posted by Sphinx on October 15, 2003

In the words of the prophet Isaiah, "Lift your eyes and look to the heavens. Who created all these? He who brings out the starry hosts one by one and calls them each by name. Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing."
(What are hosts? Could you explain this short passage?)

The crew of the shuttle Columbia did not return safely to Earth; yet we can pray that all are safely home.
(What does 'home' mean? IS it a adjective? What does this suggest?)

Thanks!
