One Small Misquote For Man

So what hasn't been said about July 20th, 1969? 

                           

It is the 35th anniversary of Apollo 11's historic adventure and all that can be said about a subject has been said about this.  Except one thing, perhaps:

                  

Mr. Armstrong, a fine astronaut, must've had a ton of butterflies as he extended that leg and foot onto the lunar surface.  The exact quote he was supposed to use is:

"ONE SMALL STEP FOR A MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND."

                                  

He forgot the "a" and although no one really noticed or cared, it does take something from the original meaning.  Anyway, it was a time of energetic hopes and awed inspiration.  And finally, we're going back.

You have to be a brave soul to venture out in the universe; especially during that time... I don't know if I could ever leave Earth to the unknown like that!  Julie
