We lost a true American hero over the weekend. Neil Armstrong died at the age of 82. Armstrong was a part of NASA, visit this site and in turn, in one of the most exciting times in American history. I have always been impressed by the great explorers: Lewis and Clark, Edmund Hillary, the great seafarers. To see a vast expanse, or a great peak and say, “I want to go there.”
NASA holds a special place in my heart. The mission these men undertook was so American. It required guts, physicallity, boldness, intellect and most of all, teamwork. I wasn’t alive during the Mercury, Gemini or Apollo missions, but I’ve read on them extensively. The sense of mission these men and women took on, the drive for one common goal, that was so mind bogglingly high, is America at it’s best.
Hopefully, Neil Armstrong’s passing causes you to look back on this exciting time in American history, and to recognize the achievements of those that came before us.
