Apollo 11 Moon Landing 50 Years Ago: Greatest Day in History!

This is what we mean when we say Make America Great Again!

On Friday the surviving Apollo 11 astronauts and the son of Neil Armstrong gathered in the Oval Office with President Trump to remember the most amazing moment in history.  Notice that unlike winning teams in minor sports endeavors none of these real heroes took a knee or declined the invitation. They are proud of America and what we achieved by working together instead of constantly seeking to divide and hate.

Where were you 50 years ago?

I was at my grandparent's house in the woods in Ohio.  On a hot summer day my brothers and I would usually be swimming in the pond but not Sunday July 20, 1969.  We were watching TV as the Lunar Module landed on the Moon.  Back home at 1 AM I watched TV live as Neil Armstrong came down the ladder and became the first human being to set foot on the Moon.

Later I would take this photo of Neil Armstrong and family in the parade welcoming Armstrong back to his hometown Wapakoneta, Ohio.  I believe the boy sitting next to him is his son Mark standing next to President Trump above.

A great moment for America and the world:

NASA has a special web page with more photos and information about the trip. It was an extraordinary human achievement without parallel.  When you think of how complicated it was to send men that far and bring them back. Take a look at the graphic below and realize how challenging each maneuver was:

To the America haters in Antifa and the Democrat Party who say America was never great, print this page out and shove it in their face.

Trump: Make America Great on the Moon Again!

Vice President Mike Pence in a speech at the Kennedy Space Center announced that the U.S. will return to the moon by 2024 as we prepare to go to Mars.  It's American destiny to lead the world in these great adventures and we accept the challenge!
