Prayers for the Johns’ Family on a Sad Anniversary

Today, July 17, 2021, is the 25th anniversary of the explosion of TWA Flight 800 and the loss of 230 lives, including Courtney Elizabeth Johns, the sister of Geoff Johns and the inspiration for Courtney Whitmore, a.k.a. Stargirl.

(Photos taken earlier this year of the TWA Flight 800 Memorial.)

I just thought the occasion should be noted.

(And in case Mr. Johns is somewhere in the background, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family on this day, and also my thanks and gratitude for sharing Courtney Whitmore with all of us.)


Later tonight I’ll be hosting a 2 hours of Stargirl watch along as a tribute to her. My thoughts and prayers goes out to the families that lost their love ones on that terrible day. :pensive:



Thanks for sharing


No doubt, the funerals for all, and memorials for the many who perished then, are likewise remembered on this date. Courtney was indeed fortunate to have a brother who’s love for her, and talents as a writer, will allow her memory to stay with us, always. May the souls of TWA Flight 800, forever Rest in Peace.
