The Moon - 41 years ago, it was a big deal

July 20, 2010 by  

When Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the moon in 1969, I did not care. I was two, mind you. But 41 years ago, it was a really, really big deal. Bigger than iPad or Lady Gaga even, if you can imagine that.

    41 years ago, I was sitting on a stoop (steps) in South Philly, with many others, watching a small tv hooked to an extension cord as we set foot on the moon. I’ll never forget it.
