“It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth.
 I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth.
 I didn’t feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.”

“I am, and ever will be, a white-socks, pocket-protector, nerdy engineer,”
~ Neil Armstrong, 2000.
 “What a legend.”

“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.”
 ~ Requested by His Family
