It was 45 years ago today that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon. There was a time in this country that we strove for the impossible. We told our children that they were capable of the seemingly impossible if they just worked hard enough and strove for success. Schools were more concerned with actually teaching children, instead of focusing on making sure they can pass a test and teaching them WHAT to think, not HOW to think. The government would rather spend our money on boondoggle after boondoggle and infinite useless pet interests instead of projects that would make us proud of our country again. We’re falling behind the rest of the world in multiple ways and no one in power seems to give enough of a damn to actually fix the problems, just throw money at them and smile for the publicity events. It makes me sick to see where we’re at as a country.
So, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to going outside to look up at the moon and openly weep about the current state of things.
