    1910 - Galveston native Jack Johnson defeated reigning heavyweight champion Jim Jeffries.

    1969 - The first word from the surface of the moon: "Houston, .........the Eagle has landed."
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.
