INSPIRATION: To the Moon and back

Neil Armstrong inspired a generation of people. As the whole world watched him take the first steps on the moon, and recall his famous line, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”, millions of people were inspired. 44 years later, as I sit at my laptop, writing my inspiration piece, researching about Neil Armstrong and the incredible month that was July 1969, I’m inspired.

200 years ago, if you asked someone if they thought man would ever walk on the moon, they’d laugh in your face. They’d tell you not to be so silly, and that it’s impossible. But that’s just the thing. Impossible. Is anything really impossible?

Today, in total, 12 people have walked on the moon. All of these astronauts defied the odds, and all of these astronauts inspired one another.

So next time you’re sitting in maths, unable to do an algebraic equation, complaining that it’s ‘impossible’, think about the moon, and be inspired.
