July 20, 1969, “one giant leap for mankind”; Neil Armstrong sets foot on the Moon.
Present day, the James Webb Space Telescope peers into the distant past from orbit. But today in 1969 was one of the greatest moments in human history!
“At 10:56 p.m. EDT Armstrong is ready to plant the first human foot on another world. With more than half a billion people watching on television, he climbs down the ladder and proclaims: ‘That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.'”
In 1969 the world’s population was 3.6 billion.
Grateful for health
My heart is full of gratitude today as I realize I am (almost) recovered from a long foot ailment! It began in November 2018 and has plagued me the past 3 1/2 years, making walking very painful. It was difficult to walk more than a short distance before having to sit and rest my right foot. I’d been to a podiatrist, an acupuncturist, a physical therapist. I’d tried compression socks, heel inserts, cortisone injections. Finally, about a month ago, I began to be able to walk without excruciating pain! I still feel some discomfort when I walk very far, but nothing like before. The world seems opened to me again. I think time itself has done the most good.
Be thankful for good health and be proactive to maintain it!
