Sept. 12 Anniversary – We Choose to go to the Moon

No, not the anniversary of the day after Sept. 11, but the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s “We Choose to go to the Moon” speech at Rice University.

“We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.”

Thanks to @pourmecoffee for reminding us about this anniversary. Also a great illustration of the power of long tail media like YouTube that can give us access to almost unlimited choice when it comes to what we will watch and listen to.
