50 years ago today...I know some of you weren't born yet, some of you were children. But for those of us who are old enough to remember, where were you when Apollo 11 landed on the moon and Neil Armstrong was the first to step out onto the moon's surface?
I was on my first trip to Europe. 18 years old, just graduated from high school and on a People-to-People tour that was my graduation gift from my grandmother and my dad. We were visiting our last museum in Moscow (USSR) when the older lady curator came out to our bus to congratulate us for landing on the moon. That night we crowded around the TV in the West Berlin hotel lobby to watch Armstrong walk on the noon.
When my husband and I watched a PBS special about the space program last week, I realized I had never seen the the lunar module land on the moon because I was in the USSR touring. It truly was seeing history made for the first time.
