I could not help but think back being a young boy watching in wonderment as mankind first set foot on the moon. I waited what seemed like hours for Armstrong to leave the lander and step out. I look forward to that continued passion and purpose that mankind possesses for even greater good.

Just wanted to take a minute as we all did that night to give thanks in our own way.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. H. L. Mencken

One of those events that I can still remember where I watched it from - on black and white TV.
Kinda hard to believe, though, that 40 years later, that event is still probably the zenith of our space program

I remember watching the coverage, but not real well.

I remember going to grandma's house to watch it and staying up very late. I was in first grade at the time. It made a big impression on me. By the end of second grade I had read all the space related books in my school library.

wasn't near old enough. Actually wasn't even close to being born. However reminds me of a stand up routine... Brian Regan. He's hilarious.

Parents got me up to see the tv coverage. I can picture the living room to this day. Something I think I will always remember.

I think the Buccos were above 500 then too...

One of those moments where I remember exactly "where I was when".

Sure the Bucs were above .500--"The Great One" was still playing then.
