A Humble Man Who Walked On The Moon Is Gone

Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon is gone. He died at age 82, leaving an amazing legacy. Goodbye, Mr. Armstrong.
Thank you for modeling modesty while achieving great things. May your next journey be even more awesome! See you on the flip side.

  2. But he will be forever remembered

      Yes. What an incredible honor. I’m glad that he got that honor instead of a pushy, showy, puffed up, loud mouthed, braggart. Sometimes the humble ones truly do get their shot at history.


  3. What a legacy to leave behind though. Not just American history, but world history, every corner of the globe was waiting, watching, hoping, a man from planet Earth on the moon, simply amazing.

      I agree. It amazed me to find out what percentage of the entire planet’s popolation watched him walk on the moon when so many on the planet didn’t have TV’s back then. People got creative and found a way.
