    Re: Neil Armstrong, first man on the moon, dies

    Oh gosh. I remember this. The adults were all so excited, they dragged the kids in the house to watch it. "It's important. You'll remember this some day for how special it is." They were right.

    RIP Neil. And thanks.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Rest in Peace, Neil Armstrong.

    I'm sure there are many fine living examples of American heros like Neil Armstrong, but I can't think of any at the moment.

    The first time a lunar landing had been tried with that spacecraft, and Armstrong nailed it even though it turned out to be more difficult than they thought. But he had always been incredibly cool in a crisis.

    We will need more such men in the future. I pray that we will have them.

    I was 10 years old when Armstrong step down onto the moon. I remember watching on our black and white TV.

    Armstrong was a great man, and a true hero. There was no guarantee of a safe return and they went into the mission without hesitation, may he rest in peace.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Apollo 13 proves your point. They beat the odds with American inginuity.

    And flat out courage by that crew. Amazing they held up under such prolonged strain and fear.

    This is one Armstrong that will not be tarnished by doping. He made us all so proud to be fellow Americans. Good job man.

    Heroes without asterisks...I agree.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.
