Neil Armstrong

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”


As a kid many of us watched as Neil Armstrong climbed down that ladder and spoke the words bringing the world together for just a little while. “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”  A few men live on long after they leave this earth.  Neil Armstrong is among those few.  Neil Armstrong a pioneer, hero, superman, honorable man and now one giant loss for mankind.


Neil Armstrong  “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”, john mccormack, albuquerque homes realty, realtor, moon, walk, astronout, quote

I too can still remember that day. I actually watched it in a hotel in Venice, Italy.  Extra proud to be an American that day.

I heard his funeral is tomorrow and we will have a Blue Moon tomorrow. Fitting I think!

I watched at my grandparent's house in Chicago. I was 12. Just about the coolest thing ever during that summer. Definately cooler than the Cubs losing to the Mets. That still hurts.

Many years ago Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were guest speakers at a Sky Ranch Conference. Hearing them speak and then having the opportunity to shake their hands was something I shall never forget.

He was quite a man.  I read his "obituary" and was amazed with all his accomplishments.

Yes, it is very sad.  Great picture/great quote.  So amazing to think back at what a big impact he had.

It still amazes me, it was a moment in history that all of us who were around will remember - just like 11/22/63 and 9/11/01 - and he was a real statesman!

This is a very nice tribute.  When we have challenges to overcome, all of them are minor in comparison with a walk on the moon.

 

Have an outstanding day and a very special holiday weekend.  Be sure to have your camera in hand to capture the special moments that you will want to share.

That day we took our kids out in the backyard with the telescope to view the moon in remembrance of what he did for our country.
