R.I.P ~ August 5, 1930 - August 25, 2012
Today we mourn the loss of a true hero and icon of a generation, if not an entire century: Neil Alden Armstrong, former NASA astronaut and first person to set foot on the Moon, has passed away due to complications from cardiovascular surgery. Armstrong had recently turned 82 years old on August 5.
I was 15 when he stepped on the Moon. I watched it on TV for hours on end. He was my Hero.
