In my teenage years you were my idol.
You were a good actor.
And yes, you had good looks,
but you were more,
you were a person with a message,
with heart for the cause.
I was shocked when I heard the news of your death.
I haven't forgotten you and the values you stand for.
I try to live up to them myself every day.
I'm a vegetarian. Vegan is still my goal,
when I will reach I don't know...
but I'm working on it.
Anyway, the surname poster (RIVER campaign)
on Rio's Attic says it all.
That's your heritage that you left us.
I wish more people will go for those values
and make this place a better world to live in!
