Some weeks ago, I had an Eisenhower/Apollo silver dollar that I showed to my twin six-year old grandsons. The reverse side has a depiction of the Apollo 11 mission patch with an eagle grasping an olive branch over a lunar landscape with the Earth in the background. I asked the boys what they thought it pictured.
"It's an eagle building a nest," one replied
"It's landing on the moon!"
"That's right," I replied. "The eagle is a symbol of the United States. So when the Lunar Module named Eagle landed on the moon, it meant the whole country landed on the moon," in peace for all mankind. All thanks to an industry/government team spurred on, to paraphrase President Kennedy, to do "the things that are hard" in order to learn and improve ourselves.
(Here is a link to an excerpt from President Kennedy's speech setting forth why we went to the moon.)
