Ann Kellett Communications
I WAS SIX WHEN THE FIRST ASTRONAUTS LANDED ON THE MOON.
On July 20, 1969, my grandfather told stories of hearing about the Wright brothers as a child and Charles Lindbergh as a young man.
“What things we have seen in our lives!” he said to my grandmother.
I remember the look of wonder on my grandfather's face--and the stories he told that day--much more vividly than what was on TV.
His remark sparked my professional journey in storytelling.
