Goodbye Mr. Bradbury
I hope that you knew how you affected not just a generation, not just a country, but rather your reach spread globally. You made us think, ponder, and more importantly discuss ideas what had never really occurred to us before. You words were provocative but never trite. I don't really think that there is anyone who won't be touched by what you have wrote.
Today we celebrate your life and body of work, even as we mourn your passing. Thanks for the books.
Ray Bradbury passed away this morning in Los Angeles. I really like this article about Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451, and libraries.
