My memories of the moon landing
Today is the 40th anniversary of the landing on the moon. I was seven years old at the time. We didn't have a television at the time but I do remember my mother waking me up in the night to listen to the broadcast on the radio.
I didn't realize the significance at the time...I was more interested in the fact that I was allowed to stay up very late. But I do remember going out and standing on the doorstep, looking up at the moon and trying to see the astronauts.
