Neil Armstrong, R.I.P.

After living in several countries and having visited many others I’ve yet to meet anyone, no matter their age, race, religion, sex, culture or education, who doesn’t instantly recognize the name Neil Armstrong. Today the world takes one of its collective pauses and remembers the man that embodied the single crowning achievement of the 20th century.

UPDATE: The family’s statement is brief, fitting, eloquent and ends this way:

“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.”

Roger that.
