|Leonard Nimoy as the quintessential Mr. Spock.|
Brethren, Peace be with You - "Peace, and Long Life."
I want to mark the passing of Mr. Leonard Nimoy, actor, director, writer, and even singer, best known as the Vulcan Mr. Spock in the Star Trek series and movies.
There's little I can say about Mr. Nimoy's illustrious artistic career, except to say that he inspired me in so many ways and even traits that I'm even conscious about that I can only be grateful for his gifts and a life well-lived.
|Nimoy as Prophet Samuel|
In the third Star Trek movie with the original crew, The Search for Spock, we discovered that the recently-deceased Mr. Spock had been resurrected by the "Genesis Wave." As a Christian, and in common with many Jews, I expect one day in which we will also be raised up again to life, thanks to a very special "Genesis Wave." I am confident I'll be seeing Mr. Nimoy again on that morning.
Leonard Nimoy, boldly gone to where everyone else living will be going to, eventually. He was 83 years old.
