FEMALE SPEAKER: I was at home in Staten Island, New York, and I remember I kept my four children awake to watch this, and it was in New York, it was like I don't know 12:00, 1:00 in the morning maybe. It was the middle of the night, and I kept them up to watch the landing on the Moon because I thought it was so exciting. I was very excited by it, and I thought the children, it would be something for them to remember, that they were being a part of history.

My oldest was ten and my youngest was six at the time, and there were two girls in between the two boys, and they do remember it. I kept newspaper articles for them, so that they would have the newspaper articles to look back on, and the oldest two remember it. The other two are kind of iffy about it, but the oldest ones, they really do remember it, and it is a part of history, and I wanted them to see it.
