I think I could put a little perspective into your comment. I was born in the late 60’s. I remember watching what I’m sure where the last few Apollo lunar missions on our black and white t.v. While I wasn’t old enough to ponder the significance of those events, I distinctly remember a feeling everybody around me seemed to have that these things where a given and expected. Nobody seemed in awe of what was being accomplished. It’s like people had no doubt at all that we as a race could do anything we wanted and so here we where on the moon because why not. Think about your smartphone today. Your mind is not blown every time you grab it but in your hand you have more computational power that all of those Apollo systems combined. You look at it and say to yourself, “Of course”. That’s what most people thought at the time. Everyone thought we would be living on the moon in a few years because, “of course, we have the technology”.

The world was also a lot bigger and remote. The Iran hostage crisis was something that was happening “over there”. Sure it was sad and all, but people seemed to feel that it had nothing to do with us and our capable gov’ment would somehow fix it.

I also share your thought regarding ethnicity. I am definitely glad that I lived back in my island and didn’t move to the U.S. until ’85. Even then, it wasn’t a smooth experience.
