Happy “Exploration Day”

Americans for Exploration Day Petition – We The People Petition to Rededicate Columbus Day to Exploration Day.

When Neil Armstrong passed, President Obama said, “Neil was among the greatest of American heroes – not just of his time, but of all time.” He said that the crew of the Apollo 11 mission in 1969 “carried with them the aspirations of an entire nation”.

“When Neil stepped foot on the surface of the moon for the first time, he delivered a moment of human achievement that will never be forgotten.”

We propose that Columbus Day be re-dedicated as Exploration Day, for the true American spirit is about achieving the impossible through exploration, scientific research, innovation and creativity. America continues to inspire the dreamers, the courageous, the adventurers and the resolute to reach farther, to build greater and to strive to make America that more perfect union.
