God Speed

If you haven’t heard already we have lost a real American hero.  Today Neil Armstrong passed away at age 82.  There is no reason anyone should not know who he is.  There is nothing I could say that could do any justice.  I am just proud of the fact that the moon landing happened in my lifetime; I was a mere two months old.  I, of course, don’t remember it but there are still those polaroids the folks took of the tv showing those famous first pictures from the surface of the moon.  If you want to know more about the beginning of the space program and the real story of the moon landing, and how close it was to being aborted, you should read Moon Shot; written by two of the guys that lived it…Alan Shepard and Deke Slayton.
