Tidbits: RIP--Neil Armstrong (August 25, 2012)
I note the death yesterday of Neil Armstrong. I imagine his passing will inspire many to think back to what they were doing on July 20, 1969, when he became the first human being to walk on the moon. I remember watching the event on TV. The feeling of anticipation among the adults watching left a stronger impression on me than the event itself, but I'm glad to have seen it. By all accounts, Armstrong was a brilliant yet modest man. RIP.
