John Denver desired to fly, the desire for a heightened human experience. He wanted to go up into space, to feel a part of something greater. He was an advocate for the civilians in space program, but circumstances denied him from being a part of Challenger. He found his eventual death doing what he loved:


Perhaps, he experienced his greatest desires beyond death, what his human body prevented him from doing. His gaze looks onward and takes in what the the living has yet to see. Something more, something greater.
