“Don’t tell me sky’s the limit when there’s footprints on the moon.” -Buzz Aldrin
One of the most inspirational moments of our age was the first time a person walked on the moon, which occurred 50 years ago yesterday.
Most of us who are old enough can remember where we were and how we felt when Neil Armstrong stepped out of his capsule and onto the surface of the moon and said, “That’s one small step for man. One giant leap for mankind.”
But Buzz Aldrin — the second man to walk on the moon — spoke words that may have captured the spirit of that historic accomplishment even better. And on Friday we had the good fortune to hear them repeated in person by astronaut Scott Kelly at an inspiring lecture.
For me, and I’m sure many others, it was a time of incredible possibility when it seemed that we could accomplish anything we set our minds to.
What was it like for you?
