Neil Armstrong has died today at age of 82. In light of his memory and achievement for mankind, who has been your greatest role model & why?

Neil's death is yet another proof that it really does not matter how you leave this earth or to where, rather than what you do or accomplish on it.

Who has been your greatest role model who has shifted progression - no matter how small (on a personal scale) or large (on a historical global scale)? and why?

    Be the change you want to see in the world.

    Honest disagreement is often a good sign of progress
    And even with 1626 remaining, I'll stop at that, and just let everybody ponder the greatness of the man.
