35 Years Ago This Week -- Speaking of Saturday's topic, 35 years ago this week was Apollo 8, the Christmas Eve reading of Genesis, and the first Earthrise, an image that still serves as an icon for the best of the late 20th Century...a culmination of humankind's technological prowess and of the awareness of that same humankind's small and fragile place in the universe.
With what I remember of the rest of 1968 - King, Kennedy, Chicago, Viet Nam, Nixon, and my high school senior prom, Apollo 8 was a nice way to end the year. I only hope that today's generation finds something as inspiring to make up for the world in which they are growing up.
