One Giant Leap

My father remembered Neil Armstrong today by telling his grandsons about watching, on a neighbor's black and white television, one man step onto the moon's surface.  "Can we still do that, Poppy?" my seven-year-old nephew asked. My father answered, "Only when we want to."

Here is the wish of the astronaut's family.

"Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man's desire to understand."  --Neil Armstrong

Yes, sir.  Would that more of us would consider it likely we don't already know everything worth knowing.

I have been assured that I was out of my crib and with my face to the TV when it happened.

I may have been asleep, though.
