Apollo 11: 47 Years Ago Today

It was 47 years ago today that the United States of America completed perhaps the greatest achievement in human history.

The stuff of dreams, man walking on the moon, became reality.

What's it like to look up at the moon and know your footprints are there?

Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon, the first human being to step on its surface.

Billions of people have lived and only one person was the first to set foot on the moon - Neil Armstrong.

It takes a truly remarkable individual to move forward with one's life with dignity and grace after that heroic, historic accomplishment.

It takes a great, great country to achieve something so amazing.

I take pride in knowing that America once was so great. My country, my home, was exceptional. We could do anything.
