GOD BLESS YOU NEIL ARMSTRONG R.I.P MAY YOU ROCKET IN PERPETUITY!

August 26, 2012

When I watched Neil Armstrong take his first step onto the moon, on a giant TV screen in New York’s Central Park, I never felt so much pride in being an American! On the same grounds where there were bitter protests against our involvement in the Viet Nam War there was cheering and a unity like I had never seen before or since.

Neil remained a hero for all of his life, staying 240,000 miles above scandal and human frailties that have brought so many crashing to earth.

When I heard he passed away, I was in tears not just for his loss, but for finding my own spirit again, as well as the spirit of a whole new generation, ready to dream impossible dreams, brave new frontiers, and help to make our world a better place.

Thank you Neil Armstrong R.I.P. may you Rocket Into Perpetuity!

    Godspeed, Neil Armstrong. You were a true pioneer and a hero to a generation. We will all think of you whenever we gaze upward into the glowing face of the man on the Moon. Rest in peace.


  3. This is a funny story inspired by Neil Armstrong’s great accomplishment.

    On July 20, 1969, commander of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module, Neil Armstrong was the first person to set foot on the moon. His first words after stepping on the moon, “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”, were televised to Earth and heard by millions. But just before he re-entered the lander, he made the enigmatic remark:

    “Good luck, Mr. Gorsky.” Many people at NASA thought it was a casual remark concerning some rival Soviet Cosmonaut. However, upon checking, there was no Gorsky in either the Russian or American space programs. Over the years many people questioned Armstrong as to what the “Good luck Mr. Gorsky” statement meant, but Armstrong always just smiled. On July 5, 1995, in Tampa Bay, Florida, while answering questions following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26 year old question to Armstrong. This time he finally responded. Mr. Gorsky had died and so Neil Armstrong felt he could answer the question.

    In 1938 when he was a kid in a small Midwest town, he was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard. His friend hit a fly ball, which landed in his neighbor’s yard by the bedroom windows. His neighbors were Mr. and Mrs. Gorsky.

    As he leaned down to pick up the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky. “Sex! You want sex?! You’ll get sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!”

  4. Hunter George Says:

    You have captured in words the feelings of admiration so many feel for this great man, and those that went with him. I was out last light, looked up at the Moon and thought of Neil being there. I couldn’t help but think that as a child, he looked up and thought that he wanted to go there. Rest In Peace, Rocket Man.

  5. Ronnie Allen Says:

    Artie,

    Your thoughts about Neil echo mine “to a T.” What a remarkable man he was. And one of the things that impressed me most was how humble he was. He is truly the quinessential personification of the phrase “American Hero.” You tribute here is so very moving. Thanks so very much, Artie.

    Ronnie


  6. Great job Artie,you have said it all and very well. God Bless Neil Armstrong…The reality of him walking on the moon is truly amazing……

    Love and Peace,
    Denise

  7. Robin Munson Says:

    Thanks, Artie. I’m glad you took the time to remember this true American hero. I got pretty “verklempt” when I heard he had passed away. A wonderful tribute to him. I hope somehow he knows how much he meant to so many of us.

  8. Bunny Gibson Says:

    Neil Armstrong would have been proud to see your article on him Artie!!!

    Wow. I had just read that Neil was not doing too well, health-wise. I’m so sorry to hear of this great man’s passing. He IS a true American hero. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
