This is a really nice gesture.

Clear Channel Outdoor is running a file on all 963 of its digital boards in 37 DMAs honoring the life and achievements of Neil Armstrong, who passed away Saturday.

The memorial honors the astronaut with a subtle turn on his most famous words. The memorial billboard reads:  “That’s one small step for a hero, one giant leap for mankind.”

“Neil Armstrong was a true American hero who inspired an entire generation to strive for great things and to be the best we can be,” said Rocky Sisson, Chief Revenue Officer for Clear Channel Outdoor. “We hope this small gesture to remember Neil Armstrong will help celebrate the remarkable life of this man and help inspire even more young people to reach for the stars.”

Most of my childhood is a blur, but I vividly remember watching the lunar landing and moonwalk on a B&W TV in a campground in Wisconsin Dells, WI.
