NEIL ARMSTRONG, August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012

I am crying right now.

He meant so much to this nation, so much to the world.

There are so few people in this world who can say they were the very first to do something. Neil? Armstrong certainly could. So precious few have been able to bring the world together, if only for a little bit. For that one supreme “giant leap” of a moment, Neil Armstrong did. I hope future generations can understand what he meant to this world.

    I cried too, Frog.

    My earliest memory is watching Neil Armstrong step foot on the moon. I was two-and-a-half at the time.

    I was with my family today celebrating my niece’s 18th birthday when my sister broke the news. Everyone fell silent for a moment. Then I said “The moon landing is as far back in my memory that I can go.” This surprised my Dad. Then I described everything I remembered to him. He said nothing… Just nodded with a knowing smile.

    I think this would have given Neil a good chuckle (I’ve heard that he had a great sense of humor)

    Let us celebrate the life of the rarest man to walk on Earth, and of course the moon!
