    Our pastor played this same video last night during services! His message was that even though the year 1968 was so divisive, violent, and chaotic, the Apollo 8 mission at Christmas united the country, and the world, and “saved” 1968. Hard to argue with that, and in any case I won’t try, because I loved Christmas Eve 1968. It is probably my warmest Christmas memory.

    Thanks for posting it, and Have a great Christmas, Gerard!

    Resisting the urge to snark that, nowadays, libs would demand equal time for other religions.

    Okay, I didn’t win the fight, but you know it’s true. Ahhh, for simpler days.

    Christmas blessings, Earthlings everywhere.

    Had to be galling for the atheist USSR and their fellow travelers to hear this.
