Six missions after Apollo 11 amazed the world by going to the moon, Apollo 17 on December 7, 1972, was the last trip. It fell off the cultural radar. Apparently, flying to the moon, driving around and getting back safely ceased being interesting enough.
Just as amazing is that the miracle of the internet, which connects billions of people globally and instantly, is now something we all take for granted after less than a generation.
Is it any wonder that we not only get bored so quickly, but that we completely miss the most simple, relevant, compelling but amazing things that make our lives worth living.
Like lifting someone up to ‘their moon’ when no one else will.
