When the events of September 11th, 2001 took place, World Media jumped onboard and all we heard for weeks and months was the 9/11 Terror Attack.
In 2011, the media jumped onboard the 10th anniversary of that event, an event that added truckloads of unnecessary suffering to this planet for a decade, was remembered with tributes that poured in from around the world and America.
Oh, and when your Mum and Dad have been married for 50 years, it's known as a Silver Anniversary.
HERE'S MY POINT!
In 1969, for the first time in recorded history and most definitely for the first time in American history, 3 people landed on the Moon, one small step for people, one huge leap for people kind. You guys even beat Russia & China.
Fair enough, the Moon was recently downgraded to be magically hovering over us from within our own atmosphere, but I digress.
Here's the clincher.
2019 is a SILVERY MOON YEAR, A LUNAR YEAR, The 50th Anniversary of People's first step on a heavenly body. From the 1st January 2019, we should have been inundated and bombarded with Moon Memories, Archive Footage, interviews with living Astronauts and ground crew, a Silver Anniversary with Amazon, Facebook, Google, CNN, Fox, ABC, Al Jazeera, RT and many other News Networks, Oh, and NASA. Every month Google would have had a Moon Landing Themed Title. I must be a lunatic, but it seems a VASTLY important chapter of our history is being neglected by the most sensationalising media in the world.
