Farewell, Neil Armstrong

By
Today, Neil Armstrong, the man who has become the inspiration of so many astronauts and avid fans of space exploration, passed away. So long, Mr. Armstrong. You have been the reason of many a child's dreams of exploring space; to go where no man has gone before.

"As long as there are history books, Neil Armstrong will be included in them, remembered for taking humankind’s first small step on a world beyond our own.” - Charles Bolden

This is going up on the wall of my 2 yo son's room. It will inspire him to do great things.

I think our hearts were in the same place though. ;)
That's as simple as it's great and i think he would have liked it. I can also see it as a cover for his biography...
