Armstrong was commander of the Apollo 11 spacecraft, becoming the first man on the moon in 1969. His famed words, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" are etched on the hearts of our nation and our world forever.
He was a more important man than any of us will ever become, as we must, evey day, take one second to remember his name. Rest in peace, Neil Armstrong. You were one small life in this world, but one huge influence on this universe.
