The Speech Nixon Never Used When Man Landed On The Moon

It was just a few days since the first man to land in the moon bid farewell to all of. Neil Armstrong has made a big contribution to science, mankind and to United States in general.

But behind the triumph his team has accomplished when they landed safely in the moon is a very interesting twist of fate that unknowingly was already prepared if they didn’t make it.

Now that Armstrong is dead the speech of H.R. Halderman a chief of staff of President Nixon is freely flowing in the air and is creating a mix emotion to people reading each of the line written for the said astronauts.

It was explained that the speech was made ready if in the event Armstrong and his team would not make it and if the attempt to land in the moon wasn’t successful.

How the speech was written:

These brave men, Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin, know that there is no hope for their recovery. But they also know that there is hope for mankind in their sacrifice.”

They will be mourned by their families and friends; they will be mourned by their nation; they will be mourned by the people of the world; they will be mourned by a Mother Earth that dared send two of her sons into the unknown.

In their exploration, they stirred the people of the world to feel as one; in their sacrifice, they bind more tightly the brotherhood of man.

In ancient days, men looked at stars and saw their heroes in the constellations. In modern times, we do much the same, but our heroes are epic men of flesh and blood.

Others will follow, and surely find their way home. Man’s search will not be denied. But these men were the first, and they will remain the foremost in our hearts.

For every human being who looks up at the moon in the nights to come will know that there is some corner of another world that is forever mankind.
