Everyone knows the attributed quote: “This is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Neil Armstrong is a true American and a spirit whose legacy will live on. Today Neil Armstrong died but his legacy will never be dead. Armstrong represents an era of bravery where modern humanity once again found the spirit and drive to reach out and explore. Daring to put a foot on the moon and take mankind to new horizons, the lesson we should take from Armstrong and the generation who put a man on the moon is never stop reaching for above, never stop reaching for the stars.
And when disaster does strike, we persevere. After the Challenger incident, it seems America’s manned space program took a major blow. But we must not quit and continue to reach out; it’s the nature of humanity to explore and overcome.
