A Sad Day… the passing of Neil Armstrong

Neil Armstrong was the "real" deal.The world lost a true hero on August 25, 2012 when Neil Armstrong died at the age of 82 from post-surgical complications arising out cardiovascular surgery.

In July 1969, as Commander of the Apollo 11 flight, he was the first man to set foot on the moon.

Neil Armstrong was the “real” deal.

He was the epitome of humility.  He never sought to cash in on his fame. When he returned to earth, he became an ardent spokesperson for NASA and a college professor.  He was selfless… compassionate… and caring. He was a hero for many of us “boomers” and represented the best of the American spirit.

As he stepped off the lunar module, Neil Armstrong recognized the “power of small” in his timeless and immortal words, “that’s one small step for man… one giant leap for mankind.”

Thank you, Neil Armstrong. Rest in peace.
