One giant leap for a man who took a small step for all man kind


Recommended Posts

If you noticed, MSNBC was reporting for nearly two hours that his name was Neil Young. I don't get too into calling actors "famous", I consider a person famous if they made a cultural impact on more than one generation of Americans. That said, a lot of famous people have been passing away lately. Mr. Armstrong definetly made a cultural impact on the globe.

Wow.

As a kid, I dreamed of going where Neil Armstrong and the others had gone. Unfortunately, that was a dream that went unrealized. I was saddened by the news of his passing. Unfortunately, being where I am in this life, I'm seeing a lot of my heroes (on and off television) are passing away; unlike the generation of kids today who are watching their idols killing each other off......

"It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small." - Neil Armstrong

Lt. Armstrong, not only lives in the history books but in our hearts.

Farewell to a Great American.

High Flight

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth

And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;

Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth

of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things

You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,

I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung

My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .

Up, up the long, delirious burning blue

I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace

Where never lark, or ever eagle flew —

And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

— John Gillespie Magee, Jr

Mission Secured, Neal Armstrong. Well done!
