As you may have heard, Neil Armstrong, the astronaut who first set foot on a landmass other than our planet, has passed away at 82.
He and the Apoll 11 team were an inspiration for many, including me. For years as a young kid, I imagined being an astronaut until medical reasons dictated that being a pilot was forever out of reach (another reason why I turned to writing). I never stopped dreaming, however.
In honor of this modern pioneer, I salute you, Mr. Armstrong. You might of had a small step, but it launched a giant leap for mankind.
World, let's resolve our squabblings to make the next leap possible.
I'm David, and may we never stop dreaming - you're next, Mars!
