Thirty-nine years ago today, humans from Earth landed on, and walked on the moon.
We need a national holiday called Moon Day. Indeed, we need an INTERNATIONAL holiday called Moon Day — the day that the human species bridged the gulf between the Earth and her Moon.
In some ways, it is an accomplishment that may well outlast our species. It is an awe-inspir9ing accomplishment that we take for granted — the more fools we. To have seen such an event is an occurence that peoples of all ages would surely be jealous of. We should honor and cherish it.
It is every bit as important as the birth of any president, the signing of any document, and surely at least as worthy as a groundhog looking at his shadow, or somebody drinking green beer and shouting drunkenly, “Erin go bragh!”
So, as the moon rises tonight, walk outside and take a look in the corner of the man in the moon‘s eye (or, if Easternly inclined, at the base of the hare in the moon‘s ear on your right).
And celebrate Moon Day.
Happy Moon Day.
