I heard that Neil Armstrong had passed away on the 25th of August. My friend had sent me a text about his passing. I stopped, re-reading the message I cursed and looked up at the sky at the rising moon.
I was 16 when Neil and Buzz walked on the moon, a matter of fact they landed on the moon on my birthday . That was the nicest gift I had ever ben given. I sat in awe with the rest of the world that evening as we watched Neil slowly climb down the ladder and put the first footprints of man on the moon. ‘That’s one small step for [a] man one giant leap for mankind”.
Neil became a silent hero for the American people. He was a quite man that shied away from public life. He never made a big deal about the fact that he was the first man to walk on the moon. He would have rather been teaching and working in beloved areo-space engineering world than to do the public thing. No matter what he will always have the honor of being the first man to step from the earth to the moon.
So on a bright moonlit night lets all look up at the moon and give a wink and say a silent thank you to Neil Armstrong.
