Your morning start for Thursday, Sept. 10, 2020

Good morning, today is World Suicide Prevention Day, a day where people can join in unison to promote an understanding of suicide.

Fun Fact of the day: Astronaut Alan Shepard hit two golf balls on the moon’s surface

On the Apollo 14 space mission in 1971, Alan Shepard became the first and only person to play golf somewhere other than Earth. He attached a six-iron head (which he’d smuggled onboard in a sock) to a piece of rock-collecting equipment and hit two golf balls while on the moon’s surface, hitting his second shot further than 200 yards.
