One Small Step at a time!
Today is the 50th anniversary of the first man on the moon. That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind. I remember what I was doing that day. My parents were at work. They left implicit instructions that I was to watch with my girlfriend Liz and her family. It was moving thinking back that I was able to see history happen. This historic event can only be matched by the first step by a man on Mars. Read the wiki about Apollo 11 here.
I don’t remember what I was thinking, but I just had to be impressed. How could I not be. Several years ago, while visiting the Kennedy Space Center, I was awestruck by the significance of what I was seeing and remembering what I had witnessed, albeit by television, in my youth. The bravery, resolve, and spirit of all the men and women who made space travel happen is incredible. One of our family friends, who worked for Boeing in St. Louis, was even a small piece of the puzzle that made all of it work. I remember seeing the pictures of him in his white coverall suit. I remember a certificate signed by the president.
Thinking about this whole series of events means that, while I am awestruck with one small step that someone took, it had to start somewhere. A dream, a vision, a discussion, led to putting man into space, on the moon, and living in a space station. I believe that we will one day live out the dreams of many creators in all the space travel adventure series. Or live like the Jetsons! I know I will probably not live long enough to see it or participate fully, but I know that I would be encouraging.
