I wanna see too!

Lori Pierce

December 3, 2012

I was only 3 years old,kids don't remember much at that age. But I remember this! Dark, my dad and my uncle looking up at the stars from our front yard. Saying things like, is that it, it has to be, it's moving. And binoculars being used. And a word "Sputnik". I wondered what else is up there, I wanna see too! Yes! It, was 1957. I'm now 58 years old, looking and seeing a lot more.
