One small step for man….August 25th, 2012 at 8:23 pm by T.J. Del Santo under General Talk, Tony's Pinpoint Weather Blog
…One giant leap for mankind.
This is a litte off beat from the typical weather blog, but worth thinking about. On the passing of Neil Armstrong today, we say goodbye to a true American hero, pioneer and an inspiration to us all.
To understand this very private man, I think it would be best to read the words from his family:
“For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.”
Armstrong passed away in a month with two full moons…the second is known as a blue moon, a rarity. This first man to walk on the moon was a remarkable man…brave, strong and determined. He was dedicated to his country (served in the Korean War) and his family.
We should all follow in his dusty, moon-rock filled footsteps.
