A true hero to all Americans and ultimately the World.

Most in my generation still remember where they were when we first saw the painfully shy test pilot and Eagle Scout first step onto the moon.

Me? Watching him on the b&w TV they brought in to Mrs. McCain's second grade classroom specially for the occasion.

He recently remarked of himself himself "I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer."

"For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request,'' his family said in a Saturday statement. "Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink."

He and his wife lived just down the road from me, not that I knew him personally, but he did give interesting talks at the local library a time or two and was known by people around town, and everyone I've ever spoken to about him agrees he always seemed a great gentleman as well as a scientist and adventurer of the first order. I knew he was ailing and I was saddened to hear he'd gone.

No way. I think I'm probably more shocked and saddened by this news than any other celebrity obit I can recall. He was not only a hero of the space age, and somebody I've admired since childhood, but as such an introverted person, he was a hero I could relate to. A quiet guy who managed to achieve greatness. That's inspiring.

Criswell is right, this has been one sad year for losing famous people. It just doesn't seem to stop.

Even though Neil Armstrong achieved immortality before I was even born, I can appreciate him as a true hero. The modern world could use a hero like Mr. Armstrong. Rest in peace sir.

THIS is a hero to be admired and emulated-he did what we as kids dreamed of-going into space-and the balls to do it.
By the way-he knew ufos were REAL too.
So for all you nay sayers-ask the Appolo Mission astronauts and mission ground crew-they got no problem admiteding that ufos exist-it's the goverment shutting it up.
Yeah I sound like a conspiricy theory nut....but sometimes paranoid people are that way for a reason.  Wink Or maybe Im just paranoid. Is this being recorded?

You decide.

How many of us have dreamed of exploring space? So few have really acheived so very much. Bluesad R.I.P. Neil Armstrong, a hero and legend indeed.

Neil Armstrong is a true American bad-ass. If you don't sit down and think about the human accomplishment that Neil Armstrong was a part of, I have no patience for you.

That being said, I have few heroes in this world, but Buzz Aldrin's response here is one of the greatest things I have ever seen.

Small | Large


Neil Armstrong was part of the very limits of human exploration. If you don't recognize how cool that is you're a lost soul.
