LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Remembering Neil Armstrong
Question of the Day
Neil Armstrong has died, but his accomplishment belongs to the ages now (“Neil Armstrong, first man on the moon, dies,” Web, Saturday). The memory of what he did will live forever in the history of America and the world.
People from all over the globe will continue to look at the moon and proudly say, “We have been there.” Indeed, Neil Armstrong represented us all when he landed on the moon. He gave America, in particular, a big moment when he planted the American flag in the Sea of Tranquillity. He opened new worlds for all of us — the world of outer space and the many planets out there far from Earth.
He was a man of courage, a man of great valor, a man with a vision and a dream, a man who gave us the inspiration to go farther in space than human beings had ever gone before, a man who opened the door to the heavens, above and beyond. But above all, he was a true American hero.
Thank you, Neil Armstrong, and may God bless you forever.
