|River Phoenix - what can I say?|
I watched "Stand By Me" for the first time
about a year ago, and since then,
I have not stopped watching it.
It is quite clear that River was an amazing actor,
and from what I've learned,
an amazing and caring person as well.
His death (although tragic) seems to have
brought on a light of awakening
to show how precious lives are.
It's too bad only tragedies make these things evident.
River, I have one thing to say to you:
you live in all of our hearts
and we will always cherish that.
Six years. Such a beautiful human being.
Caring heart, warmth, compassion.
Everything that makes River as wonderful as he is.
River, live on forever, dear!
