    I was 1 1/2 years away from being born. It was an amazing thing, though.

    I was eleven years old. My family went to my aunt and uncles' home to watch it. We had fried chicken, cake and home made ice cream (all my best memories include food ), then watched Neil Armstrong take his first steps on the moon. We were all glued to the set. I have four brothers.. we were all so excited. My brothers immediately wanted to become astronauts.

    My aunt still says they never landed on the moon - it was just a movie set. No point in arguing with her - she's 82 now.
    I love you, you love me, we're a happy family...

    I wasn't thought of yet, either. My mom tells me about it, though. She remembers her grandfather swearing it wasn't real, that he thought it was all staged.

    I was 9 and was at church camp for the first time. I went to the same camp from then until I graduated from high school, and then I was a counselor for three summers. The moon landing was the ONLY time I have ever seen a television on the entire camp grounds.

    They had us little girls get ready for bed and then come back up to the mess hall to watch. I remember it vividly to this day.
