I remember that day over forty years ago like it was yesterday. The day when Neil Armstrong first stepped foot on the moon.

It was July 20, 1969. The day before my birthday. Our family was on vacation on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hanpshire. The on air television channels then weren't very strong were we were located so the picture was grainy.

But we still heard those tinny sounding words non the less. "That's one small step for man... one giant leap for mankind." They were uttered by the Astronaut Armstrong on that historic occasion.

Neil Armstrong passed away today. He has taken his own final giant leap. But his legacy lives on forever on the moon in the form of the first footprint.
