    This is so bittersweet. I was 8 in 1969. I KNEW I’d live and work on the Moon someday.

    Then in 1973 they gave up the Moon Flights, and something in me died.

    Someday, a million years from now, Aliens will find our footprints in the Lunar dust, and look up at the lifeless ball above them, and wonder what it was that failed, our courage, or our common sense.

    And Red’s got Pluto hanging from his solar system. What a shock when they demoted Pluto…

    Euclid
    by Vachel Lindsay

    Old Euclid drew a circle
    On a sand-beach long ago.
    He bounded and enclosed it
    With angles thus and so.
    His set of solemn greybeards
    Nodded and argued much
    Of arc and of circumference
    Diameter and such.
    A silent child stood by them
    From morning until noon
    Because they drew such charming
    Round pictures of the moon.

    But the shadows obscure the best part of the spaceship – the part by Rover’s tail that reads, “DANGER EXHAUST.”

    I wonder if they will meet any aliens along the way. Calvin did today.

    “Americans do this that and the other thing, not because it is easy, but because it is hard.”

    I was a kid then, and it has never left me. Indeed, it means more.

    Not to be disagreeable, but don’t write that epitaph on our tombstone just yet. We’ve had some lapses, yes, but our story is going to continue! The universe is waiting for us!
