•ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY•
//JULY 20, 1969//
🚀👨🏻🚀🇺🇸 ~ Apollo 11 successfully landed on the Moon.
“For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past, or the present, are certain to miss the future.”
- John F. Kennedy
~ We reached for the stars and we were dreamers - we took a small step because of one giant leap, and we took a giant leap all because of one small step.
We were Americans.
We were dreamers.
We chose to be better than ourselves.
We chose to look up.
We chose to move our technology forward and onward into the vast advances of the ever-evolving future.
We were explorers; first in ourselves - finding out how to better the nature of our character as a people before all else - to the many lands and nations that reside around our country, and then to the outer unknown reaches of space.
We chose to push ourselves further and further into the great beyond.
We chose to be winners, and rather than bragging about our victories, we instead kept our defeats small and few. We stretched forth our eager hands of discovery and reached cautiously, yet hastily into the unknown.
We chose to dream.
We chose to go to the Moon.
When was the last time you reached for the stars?
When was the last time you dreamed?
When was the last time you went to the Moon?
