July 19,1969 was the date when the American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin of the Apollo 11 Mission walked on the moon, the first feat of its kind. It was then that Neil Armstrong triumphantly proclaimed the United State's conquest of the moon announcing the feat as "One small step for a man, one giant step for mankind".
Many more missions have been launched, each mission being a vast improvement over the prior one. With more nations participating in the exploration and the United States being the veritable leader, the race towards space continues at unprecedented pace.
At the same time that the astronauts were declaring conquest of the moon, an entertaining feat of international unity was being propounded here on planet earth. Ms. Gloria Diaz, the Filipina with the Miss Universe crown of 1969 on top of her head, validated the truth about the beauty of the Filipino people. So did she also validate with extreme jubilation, the truth about the beauty of the country she represented - the Philippines.
Though extremely small but undiminished in significance by even the astronauts' and the beauty pageant's accomplishments, was a feat of my own, namely, my first steps on the United States' soil as emigrant. On that very same date, July 19, 1969, my steps profoundly changed my life forever.
The date was the beginning of a new life. Habits had to be changed, American culture had to be learned, language barrier had to be scaled, family had to be trained to adapt, and my way of thinking had to be altered. Daunting tasks? Yes, they are, but I did adjust, and so must others like me in order to live in the ever-changing condition of the country I consider the beacon of hope - the United States.
