I hope most of you haven’t been spending too much time on the moon. As we bring about this week, two ‘Armstrongs’ were on the major news headlines for 2 very different reasons. But they had one thing in common — inspiring a generation from their exploits. One set foot on the moon, the other faced cancer and won.
Lance Armstrong just announced that he would quit fighting the dope charges. It is a shame for him to be brought down to this level. Surprisingly, he was never found ‘positive’ on the dope charges brought against him. But as I read somewhere, it seems that almost all or at least a significant part of the top cyclists were found positive for various doping charges, so Lance’s impressive 7 Tour de France titles came as a huge surprise amid all the other drug scandals involving the other cyclists.
That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind
Neil Armstong passed away on the 25th of August. He will forever be remembered as the first man to set foot on the moon. By being part of the Apollo 11 mission, he has become a hero for all mankind.
