alzheimer’s & the moon

The “Address at Rice University on the Nation’s Space Effort”, or better known simply as the “We choose to go to the moon” speech, was delivered by U.S. President John F. Kennedy in front of a large crowd gathered at Rice Stadium in Houston, Texas on September 12, 1962.

Apollo 11 was the first spaceflight that landed humans on the Moon. Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC. Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface six hours later on July 21 at 02:56 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later.

In the two paragraphs above, we see the results of something. It may be up to each of us as to what actually made it happen and why, but it happened. We put a man on the moon.

Well here we are with another bold undertaking. I’m betting we do it!

The National Alzheimer’s Plan set forth a bold agenda to prevent and effectively treat Alzheimer’s disease by 2025. The Plan outlined action steps that the federal government needs to take to meet that goal, and the NIH’s Alzheimer’s Bypass Budget spells out the funding needed. This funding will be used to implement those action steps and would fully fund the Bypass Budget proposal.
