Photojournalist remembers grappling with emotions and job duties during Challenger Shuttle disaster

Here's a short video featuring Orlando Sentinel photojournalist Red Huber recounting the day when he witnessed the Challenger space shuttle explosion. Because of his longtime experience working with and reporting on NASA, he knew immediately that something had gone wrong while others around him thought the smoke was part of the space shuttle launch procedures.

He mentions something here that I think a lot of photojournalists fight with all the time. That is, when something tragic or extraordinary happens, how do you continue on photographing and doing the job of documenting events when every ounce of you wants to witness the event outside of the viewfinder.
