Celebrate Mankind's Achievement of Landing on the Moon -- Make July 20 National Moon Day

On July 20, 1969, our species left our small, blue planet and put our footprint on the Moon for the first time. The first time that a human being has walked on another world. This moment represents an enormous scientific and engineering accomplishment and the work of thousands of people to make it happen. It inspired thousands of young people to consider careers in science & engineering. Indeed, July 20, 1969 will always be remembered as the day our species took its first important step in our journey to the stars. The 43rd anniversary of this occasion just passed and it barely registered on the national landscape. We need a national (really an INTERnational) day to celebrate this accomplishment and to remind children that the story is not over, that there is so much more to do, so much more to discover! With the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11's landing on the Moon a short 7 years away, please help make July 20 "NATIONAL MOON DAY" where we remember and celebrate an enormous milestone of our species.
