The club has gotten a bit smaller.

On August 25th, Neil Armstrong, the first human being to set foot upon another world, left this one for the final time.

I was ten years and one week old on the day he walked on the moon. Everything changed then.

Thank you, Mr. Armstrong, for your service to this country and your inspiration to the world.

ETA: Well, I have a year’s worth of egg on my face this morning as it’s been pointed out to me that Neil Armstrong’s death occurred about this time in 20121 Obviously I missed the news then, and somehow only heard about it today and took it to be current. My apologies if my idiocy has offended anyone.
