Rest in peace, Neil Armstrong.
I met Neil Armstrong once, at a dinner to honor Jimmy Doohan in the early 2000s.
He was not much taller than me, but he was a giant of a man. He was as kind as he was intimidating.
I don’t remember what I said to him, or what he said to me, because all I could think the entire time was
“This man has walked on the fucking moon.”
Rest in peace, Neil. Because of your bravery and your courage, an entire species will forever look into the night sky and see not a mystery, but a destination.

I think I would have been exactly like you...OMG, he went to the moon! He walked on the moon! Amazing amounts of courage to do that and he will be missed.
