On July 21, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on the moon. Above, one of the most famous Apollo 11 photographs shows Aldrin on the surface of the Moon with Armstrong reflected in his visor.
I was seven years old, sitting on my dad’s lap and Walter Cronkite was reporting. I started babbling about some sort of nonsense when dad whispered in my ear, “Listen and watch, Punkin. This is history.”
I’m 50. I still remember this and when minutes after this touch of the moon dad and mom took me outside where it was a full moon. I felt like I could touch it.
