One Giant Leap

Forty years ago today, I was 10 months and 11 days old. My sister, Danni was two years and 13 days. And our parents got us out of bed so that we could watch Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walk on the moon.
Human beings were born to explore, to discover. It seems so often the only time the world shares a moment is in time of tragedy. I wish I could remember that day, that moment. To feel the wonder, the awe and the pride that we as Americans - as humans, felt.

I hope to share that same feeling and the belief that anything is possible with my children. Thank you for sharing with me, Mom and Dad.

We came in peace for all mankind.

In honor of the 40th anniversary I put Bug in his spaceman jammies tonight.

Oh that's sweet! I do remember that day - the memories are quite foggy but I'll be eternally grateful to my mother for having dragged us out of bed to watch it!

I was six months old, and they propped me up on the couch to watch!
