As long as I live, I will never forget Neil Armstrong as I watched on my black and white TV and heard Neil’s famous words – “One small step for man. One giant leap for mankind”. What a phenomenal moment in time and history, and what beautiful
words to use to mark the
occassion. His words could not have been more perfect as he stepped down the ladder exiting the Eagle. It was a moment that brought such pride and wonder to every American’s heart. Our country was in a debacle called Vietnam and it was 1969. It would have been the last year in which our country could have kept the promise that John F. Kennedy made about putting a man on the moon in this decade.There have
been very few moments such as this in the 20th century. May Neil Armstrong rest in peace because he not only made us proud, but he also made our dreams come true.
