Are you putting a man on the moon?

Are you putting a man on the moon?

The story goes like this: President John F. Kennedy was visiting NASA headquarters for the first time in 1961. While touring the facility, the President introduced himself to a janitor and asked him what he did at NASA.

The janitor replied “I’m helping put a man on the moon!”

What I got from this was that the janitor understood the vision, had a purpose, and felt that he was contributing to something bigger than himself.
