Rest in Peace Neil Armstrong

It is deeply saddening to hear that the ultimate adventurer, Neil Armstrong has passed away.

The first man to ever ‘moonwalk’, his accomplishments as a ‘nerdy engineer’ have impacted and inspired American adventurers.  Reading of his incredible adventure to the moon is stunning.  “I put up my thumb, and it blotted out planet Earth.”  I can’t even imagine the amount of courage it took to command Apollo 11.

I can honestly say, I’ve had a couple of outer space dreams which involved riding in a rocket ship and going to the moon.  Who knows is that’s ever possible for an average girl like me, but he proved nothing is ever out of reach for those willing to work hard and be passionate about what they do.
