Fortieth Anniversary of the First Moon Landing


If you haven't been to Google today, this is their image--

It celebrates the very first time man landed on the moon. I was just a baby at the time (1 year, 1 month, 1 week, and 1 day old, to be precise), so it's not as if I remember anything. But I can imagine the anticipation and the excitement this historic event must have elicited in America during a time when our nation was going through some serious growing pangs.

How many little boys and girls were inspired to reach for the stars by the intrepidatious courage of men like Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, Michael Armstrong, and those that followed?

You just gave your age away!!! LOL

I was going to ask you if you knew how old you were when the Eagle landed on the moon! I'm glad you remembered.

I think that just about every one was glued to the TV at that time, I know I was.

Just to hear Neil Armstrong's words again, gives me the shivers.

Love, Mom
