This is striking me oddly hard. Childhood hero of mine...I even attended Neil Armstrong Elementary School. RIP, sir."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

Rest in peace , sir.
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

Someone on one of the morning shows said that more than 40 years ago we put a man on the moon, but now we can't even put one in orbit. This guy flew on the moon with technology that would be put to shame by an average smartphone today. I hope we do more with the legacy he's left us.

I remember watching him sep foot on the moon through a grainy black and white television. He and all of the Astronauts were my heroes.For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
