40 Years

The passage of time is a perplexing thing to me.

20 July 1969…I was 20.  The television we watched the moon landing…looked like this.

Three station choices.  Rabbit ears antenna.  Not in color. No big screen.   No internet.  No cell phones.    I’m sure it seems a bit primitive.  Yet, there it was, the greatest achievement of mankind.  I do wonder sometimes if we,  as a people,  have the will to chance failure…in order to achieve great,  seemingly impossible, things.  I hope we do.

Love,
Mom
