Forty-five years ago, my mother was seven months pregnant with me when the “eagle landed” on the moon.

Whether you were born or not when the Apollo 11 mission landed on the moon was actually a thing with my classmates. One of my closest friends growing up was actually born today.

I don’t feel like our government could actually achieve anything comparable today.
