1 Thunderball 1 year ago One of the very few that deserve the title hero has died. Neil Armstrong a true hero has passed (not Lance Armstrong, a guy who wins a bike race and is called a hero?). When the word hero is to be explained to a child, just tell of Neil Armstrong. A man who did something that no human being ever did - he was the first human to set foot on something that was not Earth! Not Zeus, Allah, Jesus, George Washington, Napoleon, Caesar were said to do that. Neil Armstrong did. He was a God amongst men. But what made him truly heroic is not his deed, but his humility. He never saw himself as anything other than a pilot doing his job. He never took credit, but always made sure others got credit. He shunned the limelight. He did his job and that's the way he saw it -- just a job well done. Neil Armstrong. You had the Right Stuff. You make all mankind better. Oh, we can not strive to walk on the moon, but we can strive to be a humble, brave, hard-working, selfless, adventurous human being. God speed to you on your new journey to a new world.
