| p.1 #3 · Neil Armstrong; humble hero. |
No photos to accompany this but I had the distinct pleasure to meet him and spend a few hours with him shortly after his moon flight. He was a guest speaker at a convention hosted by the association I worked for and, when he arrived at the site, he was a bit early. I was asked to show him around the exhibit area. My first thought was that he would be mobbed by people. No one approached him. After an hour or so, I told him I wanted to apologize for no one recognizing him. He told me that he preferred it that way. He said he looked like "the guy next door" and that was fine with him.
He also said he didn't feel like a hero; just one very lucky person doing his job. What a thrill to meet him and shake his hand.
