Ann Kellett Communications
I was about to start second grade on July 20, 1969, when the first astronauts landed on the moon.
"What things we have seen in our lives!" my grandfather said to my grandmother. I remembered the stories they told that day much more vividly than what was on TV.
The things they shared launched my career goal of helping people tell their stories, and it's as thrilling to me today as it was way back then.
