Guys, let's not make this a discussion about wether or not this is the right or wrong place.

Let's talk about a pioneer. A good man. A good human.

Uh, isn't that the definition of "hero"?

Tune: Melita

Lord, guard and guide the men who fly
Through the great spaces in the sky,
Be with them always in the air,
In dark'ning storms or sunlight fair.
O, Hear us when we lift our prayer,
For those in peril in the air.

Eternal Father, King of birth,
Who didst create the heaven and earth,
And bid the planets and the sun
Their own appointed orbits run
O hear us when we seek thy grace
For those who soar through outer space.

Re: The Passing of Neil Armstrong

RIP to a hero.

I was really into the space program when I was a kid. I used to watch all the launches and splashdowns that I could. I fondly remember watching Armstrong step onto the lunar surface. My whole family were together watching it. My mother was pregnant with my youngest sister and my father (who died three months ago )was painting the living room and stopped to watch.

It was a special moment for me and my family, as well as the rest of the world.




The death of Mr. Armstrong

^^^Strange, that last incomplete sentence doesn't appear when in editing mode, so I can't remove it. Not sure why that is.

Has anyone read First Man, the authorized biography?

(And my condolences Valin, I too lost my father long ago.)
