Dear Friends,

This is the week many of us remember the flight of Apollo 11 that went to the moon exactly 50 years ago! Neil Armstrong was chosen for the high honor to be the first man to walk on the moon's surface. Our family was truly excited to watch the events unfold before our very eyes, while CBS newsman Walter Cronkite enthusiastically guided us with the minute by minute dramatic details that will always be in our memories. I was 13 years of age and I'll never forget the trajectory of the rockets that began the historic trip.

President Kennedy in his memorable remarks to the nation in 1961, was committed in accomplishing the technological feat of sending an American to the moon and having him return safely to Earth. His inspiration began the teamwork that is considered a monumental feat - that will always be recorded in human history.

Even as a teenager, my recollections of this day reinforced my fascination for the universe, as I enjoy looking up by noticing the stars and the reflection of the moon whenever I can. Just the other day, there was a full moon in Los Angeles and I was able to daydream about traveling to the moon and back.

The day an American lands on Mars, will be a day full of green envy - no pun intended!

Thanks again for your continued support.
