Honor your hero!

Hi everyone! 

I got this great idea!  Honor your hero on blogger!  I've got more than one hero......  But hey!  The more the merrier!!!!!!!!!!!!  I'll do the rest later:-D

The Rules: 
1.  Write some facts on your blog on the hero of your choice. 
2. Give one reason why you chose that paticular person. 
3.  Make up an award for your hero (Ex.  Honoring George Washington for the courage he had and standing up for the land he belived in.  Thank you.) 
4.  Tag 5 friends
5.  Tell them they have to do it with the hero of their choice. 
6. Have fun!

Okay!  My turn first!

Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon.  He was brave to take that first step.  I get teary eyed every time I think of his first words on the moon, "It's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."  Here it is in his own words.

Sometimes I wish I would have been born in that great time for America.  The idea of the first man on the moon is still as amazing to me now, as it was the very first time I heard of it.

 Here is a link that touches me from Wikipedia:
The landing on the surface of the moon occurred at 20:17:39 UTC on July 20, 1969.   When a sensor attached to the legs of the still hovering Lunar Module made lunar contact, a panel light inside the LM lit up and Aldrin called out, "Contact light." As the LM settled on the surface Aldrin then said, "Okay. Engine stop," and Armstrong said, "Shutdown." The first words Armstrong intentionally spoke to Mission Control and the world from the lunar surface were, "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed." Aldrin and Armstrong celebrated with a brisk handshake and pat on the back before quickly returning to the checklist of tasks needed to ready the lunar module for liftoff from the Moon should an emergency unfold during the first moments on the lunar surface.  During the critical landing, the only message from Houston was "30 seconds", meaning the amount of fuel left. When Armstrong had confirmed touch-down, Houston expressed its worries during the manual landing as "You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue. We're breathing again".
 
Thank you Mr. Armstrong for being my hero.
 
Now for five people!!!! 
 
I don't have time right now to make an honor award, but I will!!!!!!
 
Love,
Maddie

  2. Thanks for tagging me! I'm not sure if I'll do it, because once you have a lot of followers who award you fairly often, it takes a lot of time. :)
    {I can't see your follower gadget, so then again, I don't really know ;)}
