His light will walk forever across the firmament of mankind's imagination. The stars are dimmed, the sun's gone out, and the moon? It sits their smiling down upon us as we mere mortals are bathed forever in his reflected glory, knowing that he once walked upon its face, a Titan in a Sea of Tranquillity.
And there eternal his footprint remains, the ultimate mark of his passing; for no man hath a greater tombstone then he who once looked up into the sky and saw the Earth beneath his outstretched hand and understood how very small we truly are.
Let all men stand and remember him who once, for a brief moment, saw the face of God.
In respectful memory of Astronaut Neil A. Armstrong 1930 – 2012 AD
