Concorde Blues

I really wanted to fly in the Concorde. But now it is extinct--all because one of them hit a piece of debris on the runway and crashed. Couldn't that happen to any plane? There have been umpteen causes of airplane crashes--flocks of geese, wind shear, bombs--all outside forces. But I don't see these companies taking their airplanes out of service forever. What gives?
