It saddened me today at the news that Neil Armstrong had passed on.
For those of you who don't know what an iconic man Mr. Armstrong was, it was he who left his foot print on the moon in 1969 and spoke the unforgettable phrase "That is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
I can not imagine his feelings or his thoughts as he slowly stepped out of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module, and took that first step. Eleven other people have walked on the moon, but he was the first person to feel alien soil beneath his feet and truly understand that there is so much more than THIS!
Neil Armstrong proved to the world that really the sky is not the limit, that there is so much more to this universe than what we mere humans can comprehend. He taught us to live life like there is so much more than 'us', to understand that this world is really just a little bit of what's really out there, and that this world is just a little bit. We are all placed here for one purpose, and that is to be all we can be and to do all we can do to make this world a thing of greatness. That it is our duty to explore beyond what our mind thinks it knows, and to believe that there is something more than this.
Thank you Mr. Neil Armstrong for proving that the sky really isn't the limit.
