From the (Bedford) Times-Mail
From now on, we live in a world where man has walked on the moon. It wasn’t a miracle, we just decided to go.” — Jim Lovell
People in Lawrence County, America and across the globe paused last week to remember and pay tribute to Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the moon.
He died Aug. 25 in Cincinnati. He was 82.
Many consider Apollo 11’s landing on the moon and Armstrong’s subsequent stroll along the lunar surface on July 21, 1969, among the more memorable moments in history. Approximately 600 million people were watching, many no doubt in awe, as Armstrong stepped down from the Apollo lunar module onto the moon.
