Goodbye Mr Armstrong

Neil ArmstrongAs a small child, the name Neil Armstrong was almost like a magic spell to me. He was simply the most amazing person ever, because he was the first human being to walk on another world. While other people at school inexplicably worshipped footballers I set my sights a little bit higher.

Sadly, his humanity was proven yesterday when he died of complications following a heart operation, but his family have made this simple request:

“For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. 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.”

RIP Neil Armstrong.
