50 years ago on this date I was at Hartland Bible Camp having fun and learning about Jeebus. That evening as we met in the little amphitheater the camp director told us that our astronauts had landed on the moon. I really wanted to watch the landing but I wanted to go to camp more. It was probably a good choice because there really wasn’t much to see on television during the first landing. Camp only lasted a week so I did get to watch the astronauts’ return a few days later.
Then one day a few years later our last mission to the moon ended and we never went back. Sad.
