    Please play nice, as though you were making your comments to comfort the Armstrong family, who have my deepest sympathies.

    A truly heroic, forward seeing, admirable and great American.

    He was the embodiment of what made this country great.

    He will remain a shining example of what it means to be an American. Prayers for his family.

    Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon. Not many people did that and lived to talk about it to schoolchildren.

    Comments have been coming in from all over the world, except from obama. He'll get around to it, between campaign stops.

    No!! Wow, so sad.

    I was nine and down the (Jersey) shore with my family when he took that one giant leap. Vividly remember watching it, what a huge deal it was! I remember my dad kept trying to take Polaroid pics of it off the tv but they just kept coming out black.
