I had to force my feet into the facial of the moon, so I could put my gloves onto something so never real before. It was like being in air for who knows how long, though we couldn’t play for long, could we. “ Armstrong, start hollering the empty buckets,” Michael Collions said, at least that’s what I thought he said. So as I walked back into Apollo 11 to get what was asked of me to, I stopped and just felt amazed, proud, and honored, I just stood there and looked out again to those sparkling dusty spots in the deep hole of time and energy. It was as if this was all surreal, but then I came back to reality and ran to get the massive bu... ... middle of paper ... ...essons at the age of 15 and got my pilot’s license on my sixteenth birthday.
When you were a kid did you dream of being an astronaut? Did you what to go to the moon? Like many people this dream was a goal in this research paper I will prove that this dream became a reality to be the best at ones goals and see them through. President Kennedy showed us all he was a hero by getting America to support the American space program, and get three heroes on the moon. On October 4, 1957 the Soviet Union launched the first artificial satellite and caught America and the whole world off guard.
As millions of people watched from their TV sets, a rush of euphoria came over the nation as Neil Armstrong stepped foot on the surface of the moon. It was the first time in the history of mankind that we would step on the surface of another celestial body. John F. Kennedy dared us to dream, he inspired the nation to reach for the moon, to set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. The Space Race was symbolic of many things. Our future as the technically dominate nation was secured in place; just as secure as Old Glory would be, when she was driven down into the soil of the moon.
Or rather, On you! .. On you for a month!”(P. 13) Qfwfq was not only eager to stay with Mrs. Vhd Vhd, but also to stay on the moon. To be stranded with the object of his passions in this titillating landscape might seem an adolescent daydream, but the moment they were cut off from the earth, the sensual bonds dissolved, as is said by Qfwfq himself: I should have been happy: as I had dreamed, I was alone with her, that intimacy with the Moon I had so often envied my cousin and with Mrs. Vhd Vhd was now my exclusive prerogative, a month of days and lunar nights stretched uninterrupted before us, ... and everything exceeded my most luminous hopes, and yet, and yet, it was, instead, exile.(P. 13-14) There was no distance between Qfwfq and the moon, between Qfwfq and Mrs. Vhd Vhd. Love, moon and self are united at the same moment.
Thomas Jefferson, along with four others were the ones to put the Declaration of Independence together. Fifty-six men signed the declaration. They had had enough of the British forcing them to live without representation. They would no longer stand for this tyranny.

Kennedy had promised that by the end of the decade, we would land a man on the moon.
When Armstrong was a child, his hero was Charles Lindbergh (Brinkley). Due to 9/11, all airlines were closed and Neil still wanted to get to his very important meeting (Brinkley). Neil Armstrong will always be in my mind when I think of a patriot. He took the first steps on the moon that should be remembered forever. This man has accomplished so much in life.
As the hours of straight zombie-like watching go by, the person slips further into the fantasy world of television, and with you breaking that link between them and the tube comes as a shock to them. Someone can be so engulfed that it becomes a regular part of his/her daily routine. As a result of a lot of watching TV, studies have shown that the heart rate, and blink rate have slowed down dramatically and muscular function decreased down to the snap of a finger on the remote or the lift of a drink. The stimulation of the picture and sound shift so rapidly that they must become completely relaxed to soak it all up. Television is like an addiction, and like any addictive substance a moral message lies behind it… The advertising and the programs are only they’re to keep the viewer coming back for more.

Advances in space travel occurred after this landing and NASA is looking to soon be traveling to Mars. Who knows what would have resulted if the Soviet Union put a man on the moon before the United States. 1968 was a tough year for all Americans and Apollo 11 boosted United States morale and helped many people get their minds off of the struggles of that past year. After a lot of failed attempts and a decade of research, the United States finally got a man on the moon.
Negative Effects of Television I hear the door slam abruptly and a thud from something hitting the ground. It’s about 3:15, so my sister should be home. I bring her backpack into the living room as I see her fixated on the television. I tell her to put it away and she says ok, whatever. She gets to her room and not two seconds later does her TV click on in her room.
