I guess I do with every story.
When I was in first grade, my class, along with thousands of other classes around the country, watched a lunar landing on a fuzzy black and white television. Even as a six-year old, that I was able to comprehend the impact of what I was watching. I realize there are conspiracy theories out there that point to lunar landings having never happened. I believe they did, so I am going to with the truth I believe.
Maybe we too could find a genie in a bottle or make a radio out of a coconut. Maybe we could soar above the clouds and imagine being beamed up when the going got too tough here on earth. As I sat at my 1st grade wooden desk, arranging and rearranging my books and crayons while the crackly reception showed up a man on the moon, I was taken in by the community of it all. I think Bradley sat on one side with Stacy on the other and we were neighbors, in the truest sense of the word – fellow citizens of the planet. And it didn’t matter that we came from different families, diverse races, or religious backgrounds. It didn’t matter that my dad was a Culligan Man and Stacy’s dad was an attorney. We were all watching the same thing, at the same time. And most likely, experiencing the same feelings or thinking the same thoughts. How will this affect the future? What will this change?
Technology has a way of doing this.
Technology changes how we do business.
Exciting and scary.
