I wonder why we don’t wonder?

One of humankind’s greatest technological achievements happened in nineteen sixty nine when Neil Armstrong took his first steps onto the Moon’s surface. Millions of people around the world stayed home to watch it happen live on TV.
The second time humans landed on the Moon, however, there were relatively few people who stayed home to watch it; and the third time astronauts landed, NASA had to arrange for them to play a simulated game of golf in order to get the TV networks to cover it live. Here we had the greatest technological achievement in all human history, and by the third time we had become bored with it.
It makes you wonder if we have lost our capacity to wonder at things that are wonderful. I wonder if that’s why so many seen unable to wonder at the wonder of God; we’re too easily distracted
