Remembering Neil Armstrong
Neil Armstrong: Godspeed
Dinosaurs walked with the faint, white glow of our moon on their backs. Billions of lives have come and gone on our earth over the millennia, the very breadth of humanity- all of history recorded and unrecorded. In a brief and majestic time, by vantage point, long ago, or not so long ago at all, twelve men from Earth walked upon a new world. Neil Armstrong was the first among that rare and brilliant company.
I'm looking at the waxing moon overhead tonight. It is obscured by clouds and my vision is somehow, irrevocably dimmed.
Godspeed him on his way.
