Thank You, Neil Armstrong

I was born 19 years after Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon. Even though I didn’t get the chance to watch his and Buzz Aldrin’s Apollo 11 moonwalk live, they both made a great impression on me as a kid.

If you asked me as a child who my hero was, it was Neil. My love of space ran deep and naturally, I idolized the astronauts that were brave enough to go to the moon.

So here’s to Neil Armstrong, a hero of mine who will always be more famous and special than any stupid modern-day celebrity.
