    Quote
    Neil Armstrong (1930-2012) was not entirely human. He was the spiritual repository of our spacefaring dreams & ambitions. In death, a little bit of us all dies with him. Farewell my friend. And now, perhaps more than ever, I bid you godspeed.

    SJW is not a synonym of "leftists" or "liberals". Left-wing and right-wing positions are based on economics. SJWs are left-authoritarians which means that they are not liberals. Don't paint all leftists or liberals with the same (misguided) brush.

    Scott Lowther forwards this:

    Quote
    Armstrong’s family: “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.”

    He took that famous step almost 11 years before I was born, so I didn't get to see it happen live.    However, I always really admired the guy and all the other people at NASA that made it possible.  When you take a minute to think about it, the achievement is absolutely staggering.    Wish I could have met him.

    Good luck, good sir.

    It's disappointing that the first man to walk on Mars isn't going to attend his funeral, hopefully his legacy will be followed.

    Another class act on his way home. We stand on the shoulders of giants like him.
    I especially admire his humility and shunning of the celebrity status forced on him.

    I watched him as he stepped down onto the surface of the moon and even at such a young age I felt as though the world was different some how.

    He was a truly admirable man.

    Tremendously skilled, tremendously brave, tremendously humble. Our self styled cultural icons of today should take notes. He walked on the moon and didn't act like it. What could anyone else do that could possibly be worthy of the self-adulation we see out of DC and Hollywood on a regular basis?
