Remembering Neil Armstrong

Where were you when Armstrong and Aldrin did the Moon walk? Some thoughts on the passing of Armstrong here.


  1. I was at the Catholic Academy.

    Probably getting hit on the knuckles by a ruler.

    By a mean nun.


    Happy memories.



  2. I was in a farmhouse in Maine, on the mouth of the Penobscot River. My two oldest children were very young, but we woke them from a sound sleep so they could witness our American astronauts walking on the moon. It is a night I will never forget.

  3. I was in an all girls Catholic high school as a freshman! Sigh! What a magnificent accomplishment! I love those heroes that forged into space! In my hometown of Pueblo, Colorado in the Belmont subdivision there are several streets names after these famous moonwalkers! I love the moon and I often think about these brave heroes making their trek into the unknown. Good report!

  4. I was the caregiver for an elderly woman who had dementia. For whatever reason, she was fascinated with the nearly round-the-clock television coverage of the event (a novelty back in 1969!). It was a thrill for sure!

  5. I was in school - probably high school - but I remember watching it on television for sure.

  6. I'm trying to located the news clippings I of the event. As soon as I find them, I'll share some of the Armstrong's quotes with y'all.

    He will be missed.
