The Great Astronaut Neil Armstrong Rests In Peace

A man who inspired many in America and around the world with an out-of-this-world accomplishment died today at the age of 82. Many Americans who have lived in 1969 remember where they were and what they were doing when they saw Neil Armstrong on TV walking on the moon, the first time ever in history. Just over a month ago, on July 20th, we celebrated the 43rd anniversary of the Ohio native's major milestone! Rest in Peace, Neil! And we will remember you forever :)
