When America Moved with Purpose

Without a common purpose, we have no future

Sixty years ago this week, on April 9, 1959, NASA introduced the first seven American astronauts to the world.

Just ten years later, on July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong was the first human being to set foot on the moon.

So, this begs a question. Can anyone envision the U.S.A. today accomplishing such a seemingly impossible and inspiring task in such a short period of time?

Me either. That’s on us.
