I know it's been 37 years. I know that there are probably more people that have been born since Sunday, July 20, 1969 than before (that are still alive today)...certainly among those old enough to remember the events of that historic day.
Now, I don't even know if it rated a mention in the newscasts and such of Thursday, July 20, 2006.
But I remember exactly where I was on the day of July 20,1969 when the "Eagle", the lunar module from Apollo 11, landed in the Sea of Tranquility...and we had fulfilled President Kennedy's promise that would would land a man, on the moon, before that decade was out.
And at 7:56 PM Pacific Time on that summer Sunday evening, I was a 13-year old boy, watching transfixed with my Mom and Dad in Cypress, California (Orange County) as Neil Armstrong, and later Buzz Aldrin, became the first men to walk on the surface of the moon. What a tremendous day that was.
And I remember watching scenes of crowds gathered at Disneyland that day, watching the unfolding events on large screens in the Tomorrowland area.
What a day that was. And I just couldn't let it pass without some remembrance.
If you are old enough to remember, where were you?
By chance were you at Disneyland that day or know anyone who was?
