I needed something to lift the story up, and the moon landing was a perfect fit. In the same way I needed a positive to counter all the negatives I was throwing at Bets, the moon landing seemed to lift our country up, during a troublesome time. It made perfect sense that experiencing the moon landing would inspire Bets and give her hope.
I had fun researching for this chapter, learning more about the Apollo 11 mission, and listening over and over again to the audio from the landing and first steps. Most of all, I enjoying imagining the perfect way to experience this amazing historic event!
