|Ever since I first laid eyes on River Phoenix in|
Stand By Me, my world has been changed.
I know that I never knew him,
but his impact on me is evident everyday.
I have opened my eyes to environmental issues
because of him.
He was truly an angel, sent here to open our eyes
to the destruction of nature and to remind us of
how beautiful humans can be.
