A hero passes.

He is not just an ordinary man, like you or me. He runs into burning towers in September, or lands on the Hudson, or chooses to go to the Moon and return safely to the Earth.

He knows he may not come back. Yet he is not a superhuman, but just, in the words of Freddie Mercury, a man with a man’s courage.

You have your final go signal commander, to return to the Heavens for the last time, having shown us just what we could do.

Pick a star, and straight on ’til morning.

God bless, and Godspeed.
