Neil Armstrong

Like most of my generation (or at lest those who were paying attention) I remember when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. Sitting on the floor at at school clustered around a black and white tv we watched a barely discernible image of a man stepping onto another world.

In a time when people simply want to be famous for being famous and the preferred occupation of teenagers is either being a dickhead on reality tv or hosting a reality tv show. Neil Armstrong was famous for actually doing something and he will be famous for doing something forever. He came from a time when we thought we could do anything.

For those who want to know more about Armstrong I suggest you get a copy of In The Shadow of the Moon. Here is a man who was revered by the best and the brightest.

    Could not agree with you more. Not only was he a pioneer in the true sense of the word, he was also a humble and dignified man.
