John Glenn had a good run.
95 years and off into orbit.
I was only 4 years old when we finally landed on the moon.
You know what's amazing?
I remember it!
Well, to be fair, I don't remember much, and I should've been more interested in space travel, but I just wasn't.
I never got into it...seemed crazy to me.
Yet I do remember the moon landing in a bit of an image that flashes across my mind.
We were getting yelled at:
"Watch this!" Mom cried out. "They're making history!"
"You can't see anything!" I said. "It's all blurry."
And that is exactly what I remember about it, but I know it's real. I know that the television was set up in the room just off the kitchen in the big house on the hill.
I remember being placed right in front of the television.
Yet I've listened to John Glenn and Buzz Aldrin talk about their travels.
They had remarkable lives.
I know for sure I wouldn't have the guts to do anything remotely like that. I don't even like the one hour flights!
Did they have extra space seats?
One other thing I remember about 1969...
"The astronauts drink this," Mom said.
It was all right.
RIP John Glenn...
...have a safe trip!
