In July 1969, CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite was in my Champaign-Urbana, Illinois home, specifically, Champaign, providing coverage about Apollo 11 and the mission to put man on the moon.


Cronkite's delivery of the events that took place from July 16 to July 20 had me stuck to a black-and-white television right up until astronaut Neil Armstrong took "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."


I've always admired how Cronkite had a skill to make a four-year-old child understand the world we live in.


In 1973, my first full year at the Champaign-Urbana Don Moyer Boys Club (now Boys and Girls Club), I and several other youngsters were given little black-and-white cameras. I held a Kodak 101 for the first time in my life.
