The first dusty footprints left by MEN ON THE MOON were also indelible footprints left on the hearts and imaginations of the human race. No other adventure was shared by more people. No other quest has meant more to our species as a standard by which we measure our incredible potential. This web site is dedicated to collecting memories of one of the most famous days in the history of our planet from the various points of view of people who lived it, right here on Earth. It is One Day in the Life of Earth--late 20th century--preserved in the reflection of an extraordinary achievement. Read here the human stories of the impact of a world changing event as told by living witnesses to history, before they are lost to time.
The "Where Were You? Stories of The Most Amazing Day On Earth" website collects and presents personal memories and recollections of Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon. Stories are divided into groups including Vietnam veterans and their families, children, people involved with the mission, those witnessing the event in public places or from outside the United States. Others share the way the Moonwalk was a pivitol point in their life or their reflections on the larger implications of the mission. Only a portion of the stories collected via e-mail are presented on the website, while the rest are collected with goal of publication in a book. A word limit and biographic information are recommended and there are suggestions for content of stories.
