But it seems like yesterday

I was at summer camp in New Hampshire. They brought us into the rec hall where a couple hundred of us stared, bleary-eyed, at a single black and white monitor. They said we would remember this all our lives. And I do. It’s as if it happened yesterday. Today in 1969, the Eagle landed…
