Forty Years Ago Today, Dudley Sat In Front ...

of his grandmothers television set watching spellbound as he heard those enduring words from Neil Armstrong " That’s one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind" as he set foot on the moon. Dudley was ten years old in 1969 and being an eager spectator of the space race up to that time in his life truly believed anything was possible. Four decades later, the world looks a lot different to Dudley than it did back then. Life has been harder at times than Dudley could ever have imagined but the hard times have been offset by the good times in Dudley's life where everything Dudley wanted seemed to come all to easily. One of the hardest lessons Dudley had to learn was that sometimes hard work and giving everything one has to give is not good enough. Sometimes we win and sometimes we lose, what matters in the end is that we dreamed, and we strived, and we gave it all we had.
