Neil Armstrong, Jul 20 1969 one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind

In my humble opinion, JFK was the last great Democrat president. Beginning with the fact that it was his vision, after all, to put men on the moon and more importantly, to get them back to earth safely. In contrast it seems to me that the modern ‘democrat’ party is too filled with hatred to even have a vision, never mind something as historically significant as the moon experience. For which you need astronauts.

Which is exactly what they wouldn’t have.

Imagine John F. Kennedy on the stage with the current melange of political ne’er-do-wells, communists, and anti-Christian wannabe’s passing themselves off as today’s Democrats running for president. First, they’d call JFK a racist because he’s white and heterosexual. Then, they’d brand him a “white nationalist imperialist” because he wanted to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. And finally, they’d call him an intolerant bigot because he’s a Christian.

John Glenn with the Friendship 7 in 1962 … hailed as a national hero and a symbol of the space age as the first American to orbit Earth …

Absolutely astonishing when you think of it – given the state of the art in technology at the time. Hats off to every member of the vast team of innovative American thinkers and doers of the time who pulled it off against incredible odds. They actually invented as they went along – from navigational software to textiles, the achievement of the whole team was astonishing and vastly under-rated by today’s young who take their ubiquitous i-phones for granted.

Matter of fact, they invented several technologies to invent several other technologies; now, THAT is something.

Miraculous, even!

Talking about which, those three astronauts were also devout men of God, despite the protestations at the time from one crazy ungodly atheist by the name of Madalyn Murray O’Hair, the very same who single-handedly was the catalyst for removing prayer, the Ten Commandments, Pledge of Allegiance and Bibles from public schools.

Nevertheless the astronauts weren’t to be denied. As CDN puts it, while the men were still on board prepping Neil Armstrong for his step out onto the surface of the moon (full link available down below):

In his book “Return to Earth,” Aldrin recalled:

“I reached into my personal preference kit and pulled out two small packages which had been specially prepared at my request. One contained a small amount of wine, the other a small wafer. With them and a small chalice from the kit, I took communion on the moon, reading to myself from a small card I carried on which I had written the portion of the Book of John used in the traditional communion ceremony.”

According to the Book of John (6:53):

“Jesus said to them, ‘Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”

Buzz Aldrin on Moon and his communion utensils…

In the hours before Neil Armstrong took his “one giant leap for mankind,” Buzz Aldrin commemorated the sacrifice of the one who redeemed all mankind to himself.

And finally, in a letter to Apollo 11 Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, legendary flyer Charles Lindbergh, who flew nonstop from New York to Paris in 1927, wrote:

Armstrong and Aldrin approach Collins and CSM for return to earth…

“There is a quality of aloneness that those who have not experienced it cannot know – to be alone and then to return to one’s fellow men once more. You have experienced an aloneness unknown to man before. I believe you will find that it lets you think and sense with greater clarity.”

As a point of particular interest of course, Michael Collins was the one and only human being, alive or dead, who wasn’t included in his compelling photograph of the earth as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin made their way back from the surface to the Command Service Module (CSM) piloted by Collins.

Yet Buzz Aldrin’s act of devotion, remembering the Galilean’s sacrifice for the small, blue world rising above them all, proved they were never alone amid the moon’s “magnificent desolation.”
