Where were you when Neil Armstrong first stepped on the moon July 20, 1969, forty seven years ago today?
I was sixteen years old, living on a farm outside Richfield, Idaho. Our family didn’t own a television set, but on that historic Sunday evening, our family joined some friends in town to watch the moon landing on their black and white television.
What a thrill to see that grainy image of a man from earth climb down the stairs and step onto the surface of the moon!
