I found out about Pan Am 103 from the evening news, and I remember thinking that it was nearly Christmas. Surely some of the people on that plane were coming home to see their families. What I didn't know was that one of my relatives had the task of mapping where all the debris fell.
Most children have an idea of what they want to be when they grow up, but as they face reality sometimes that dream isn't always attainable. Young adults often find that dreams become out of reach and day jobs must be attended to. That is unless you're Phil Blechman and his team of producers.
