Neil Armstrong was an inspiration to me for my entire life, and I suspect I’m not the only one. People look to the achievement of Neil, as well as his fellow Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, with the kind of honour and respect it deserves. The spirit of exploration is one of humanity’s greatest qualities, and leaving our planet and travelling to the Moon is testament to that. Despite what many people say, Neil Armstrong was not a “real American hero.” He was so much more. He was a hero of humanity and of planet Earth.
RIP Neil Armstrong 1930 – 2012
“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 is smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.”
– Statement from the family of Neil Armstrong
