One Small Step

In the late sixties
Filled with elation
Captivated by science
And space exploration.

The news was positive
No pessimism
And the future
Full of optimism.

Discoveries abound
And it was sweet
Not so negative
And always downbeat.

Young people need a lift
Not doom and gloom
Like back in the day
When man walk on the moon.

Looking ahead to a future
With peace of mind
One small step for man,
One giant leap for mankind

Take a look at this video. It’s only 1 minute 11 seconds and is a video of the 1969 Apollo 11 mission which was the first manned mission to land on the moon Neil Armstrong One Small Step.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
