An American Hero

Remembering Neil Armstrong


When man first harnessed fire, no one recorded it. When the Wright Brothers showed man could fly, only a handful of people witnessed it. But when Neil Armstrong took that first small step on the moon in July 1969, an entire globe watched in grainy black-and-white from a quarter-million miles away. We saw it. We were part of it. He took that “giant leap for mankind” for us. Although more than half of the world’s population wasn’t alive then, it was an event that changed and expanded the globe. "It’s a human achievement that will be remembered forever..."
