2017 is going about the same as 2016. The Grim Reaper could take a vacation.
I am alright, it is the world that is wrong.

people look and make the mistake that the old astronaut's suits were filled with padding and that why the looked so big.  nope.  they looked big because they were, they were Titans that walked the earth and upon those shoulders were laid the hopes, imaginations, aspirations of over 7 billion souls united to find out "what's over there"...

"As I take man's last step from the surface, back home for some time to come – but we believe not too long into the future – I'd like to just (say) what I believe history will record. That America's challenge of today has forged man's destiny of tomorrow. And, as we leave the Moon at Taurus–Littrow, we leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind. Godspeed the crew of Apollo 17."
"You cannot exaggerate about the Marines. They are convinced to the point of arrogance, that they are the most ferocious fighters on earth - and the amusing thing about it is that they are."- Father Kevin Keaney, Chaplain, Korean War
