    I remember that my sister took several screen shots of the landing and of Neil Armstrong hopping off of the ladder on the moon surface stating the famous line “One small step…” the black and white prints went missing some time later after they were shown to teachers etc.

    I remember watching on TV with my mother. I was seven years old and tried to record the broadcast with a movie camera. I knew we were witnessing history as it was made although I was too young to imagine how significant an event this was. Forty-four years later, our journey is still only beginning.
