We go to the Moon – celebrating 60 years of Kennedy’s iconic speech

Share the goodness!

This week we celebrate 60 years of the pursuit of space that was launched by Pres Kennedy’s famous speech. On September 12, 1962, President Kennedy delivered his speech before a crowd of about 40,000 people, at Rice University’s Rice Stadium. This iconic speech galvanized a nation and before the decade was out, his call to action resulted in Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin taking the first step on the moon.

This speech was spoken years before many of us were even born. Yet, we are still moved when we hear the words. His speech reminds us how far we have come and how far we have to go. Here is the famous speech that has echoed through the decades to inspire us to reach for space.
