"AND THE WORLD WAITED" JULY 20, 1969
As a Nation, we've accomplished some amazing things, but landing on the moon has to be at the top of the list. 39 years ago today, we landed on the moon for the first time. A proud moment for all Americans.
The space program and I were born about the same time. As a little kid I watched as the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs went through their phases, each flight accomplishing greater feats than the previous. For a youngster, it was exciting stuff to watch. Then, at 13, along with the rest of the world, I watched as Apollo 11 landed, and shortly thereafter, those first steps. Absolutely incredible.
