American Minute with Bill Federer

July 20

“One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind,” stated Neil
Armstrong, JULY 20, 1969, as he became the first man to walk on the

He, along with Colonel Aldrin, landed their lunar module, the
“Eagle,” and spent a total of 21 hours and 37 minutes on the moon’s
surface before redocking with the command ship “Columbia.”

Addressing a joint session of Congress, September 16, 1969, Commander
Neil Armstrong stated:

“To those of you who have advocated looking high we owe our sincere
gratitude, for you have granted us the opportunity to see some of the
grandest views of the Creator.”

Years later, April 21, 1972, Astronauts Charles Duke and John Young
also explored the moon’s surface during Apollo 16’s mission to the
rugged highlands of the moon’s Descartes region.

On June 22, 1996, Astronaut Charles Duke spoke of this experience at
a Prayer Rally during the State’s Republican Convention in Lila
Cockrell Theatre, San Antonio, Texas:

“I used to say I could live ten thousand years and never have an
experience as thrilling as walking on the moon.

But the excitement and satisfaction of that walk doesn’t begin to
compare with my walk with Jesus, a walk that lasts forever.”
