A Moment When Humanity Came Together Briefly

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
Lao Tzu

When we got back from the Moon, we were sent on a world tour. Everywhere we went, people didn't say, "You Americans walked on the Moon". Everyone we met said, "We did it!" That was a very ephemeral moment.
Michael Collins

I can't think of a better tribute to John F. Kennedy and the aspiration he set for this country and for humanity; and for NASA and its astronauts who sacrificed much to make landing on the Moon a reality. In another year, the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing and Moon walk will take place.
