Today, as many of you know, is the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. I just wanted to take a moment to recognize this great moment in the history of the world. Space travel always has amazed me and I love the idea of exploring in that way. It must have been amazing for these three men to get to the moon and gaze back at our planet. What a view.
I am inspired by the words of President Kennedy as he spoke of going to the moon, roughly a year before he was killed and years before I was born. It helps me remember that you have to just go for it sometimes, even if you don't know all of the details of how you're going to do something, even when it's hard. This is what faith is to me. Here are his words.
"We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win" ~John F Kennedy - September 12, 1962
