Neil Armstrong: Moon Walker

I found this at
Neil Armstrong:

    First person
          to set foot         
            on the moon.

One of the great heroes
of the twentieth century.

Neil Armstrong has died.
He was 82.

That famous step.
That famous phrase.
“That’s one small step for a man;
one giant leap for mankind.”

He made a contribution to knowledge,
moving the human race a little farther forward.

The Eagle has landed.
Neil Armstrong has died.

Neil Armstrong was a humble self-effacing man who was uncomfortable being called a hero. He said, “The single thing which makes any man happiest is the realization that he has worked up to the limits of his ability.”
