50 years ago next week, Neil Armstrong uttered what remains one of the most iconic statements relevant to all of humanity except for the Bible. “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
That’s the message I woke up to Wednesday morning from a friend on the west coast. A few minutes later I learned that our mutual friends, Ossie Mills, had died suddenly at 58. We chatted about Ossie, how I got to know him through a unique project he was running to bring Christians to Israel, how it was in fact Ossie who introduced us. And we consoled one another.
