sad to see you go
I was sorry to hear of the death of Neil Armstrong on August 25. What extraordinary experiences he had in his long life. I am inspired by the skill, intelligence, and humility he met them with. His moonwalk was humanity's first—and it happened to coincide with my birth. For all my life, every significant birthday has been marked with remembrances of that moon landing. I feel Mr. Armstrong has been a companion in a way, his very public and momentous landing coinciding with my personally pivotal arrival on earth. I am glad it was a long, full life. And it's sad to see you go.
