This might not be appropriate for a Talk page, but ...

Much has been said in the USA lately about the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks being one of those moments where people will one day ask, "do you remember where you were when you heard the news?" For me, the biggest event that warranted that sort of response in the past was the first lunar landing. I was five years old, crowded into my grandmother's living room with perhaps every relative on the planet, trying to see the television, and eagerly chatting with everyone about what we were seeing. Thinking about the Apollo program lately has been therapeutic for me; a reminder of the heights to which humanity can reach, and a memory of being able to share in that experience, in however small a way.

So where were you when they walked on the Moon?

Again, apologies if this is not appropriate; willing to remove it if so. -- RjLesch
