Today’s Photo:  A Point of National Pride

Setting yourself goals and then striving to reach them can be a matter of personal pride.  However, when the goal is much greater than one person, it has the potential of becoming a national goal.  That is what happened during the space race… land a person on the moon.  In 1969, after many failures and successes, the United States accomplished this goal.  It was only through the hard work and ingenuity of those people who would dream that it happened.  However, it was not without extreme danger which is evident on the Apollo 16 capsule that sits in the US Space and Rocket Center in Alabama.
