The First Step.....
Can you possibly imagine being shot into Outer Space
atop the most powerful rocket ever built by humans,
inside a glorified ash can with primitive electronics?
To me, thats tantamount to an Ojibway Indian canoeing 25
miles to Lake Superior's Isle Royale in a birch bark
coffin..To mine Copper! Bravery and an overwhelming sense of
adventure thats is hard to even put into words.
For the ones still breathing of MY Generation, there are those
unforgetable moments frozen in time...
The JFK/Lee Harvey Oswald Murders
The Bobby Kennedy/MLK Murders
AND...The First Man on the Moon!
I was in my buddy Dallas Griffus's back yard, watching his
12 inch B/W with aluminum foil attached to the rabbit ears!
I remember it like was yesterday....
You took that first Giant Leap...
Rest in Peace Brother.
