One Small Step

"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." - Neil Armstrong

These words have echoed through space since they were spoken back on July 20th, 1960. They will continue to echo through not only United States history but the history of mankind. That day Neil Armstrong became the first human being in history to step foot on the surface of the moon. 

Sadly this past week he took the final voyage to the heavens above. A living legend passed away and though he is gone his mark will continue to inspire people for generations to come. He was once quoted as saying - I believe every human has a finite number of heartbeats. I don't intend to waste any of mine - and looking back on his life, he didn't waste a moment. From being an astronaut to a teacher, he made sure his life was lived to the fullest and not only that he made sure the world was better for him having been here. 

These are in honor of him. RIP Armstrong, may your honor, valor and dedication be a beacon for future generations that anyone can touch the stars if they only believe they can.
