RANDOMora: The speech had Apollo 11 astronauts were stranded

What if, after the magnificent landing on July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 never came back to Earth? What if they were stranded and the day would then be known as a tragedy?

Well, that "If" was prepared for by Pulitzer Prize winner William Safire, two days before they had even landed on the moon. It is an "eerie" speech where Nixon was prepared to say a front of the United States.

In today's generation with the start of the Iraq War for what was for 9/11, and more currently the Health Care Reform because of those and others riveting costs (where already on a recent poll, 54 percent of Americans doubt that Congress will get this passed this year), government can be the brightest star, but also an ever waiting supernova.

Though frightening, it does prove that we are only human and no matter the goals we set, we must be sure we reach them. Otherwise, the outcome will be an unforgettable one.
