There is a little known holiday celebration today. As it was from the beginning, it is trumped by the celebration of the first man to walk on the moon. After all, who can compete with NASA.
However, considering the troubles NASA has been having lately, i would venture to say that maybe today's celebration is the rememberance of something profoundly successful, if not more, than our nation's beloved space program.
40 years ago my parents drove from AZ up to Tonopah, NV to get married. The day after, they watched in awe with the rest of the country the "Giant Leap for Mankind". Kinda fitting for something like taking a giant leap with someone else, promising to live the rest of your life together.
Congratulations Mom and Dad!!
