|How can we live without a man such as River|
in our lives? He promoted all that was good
and right for this world such as veganism and
animal rights. Even though I never had the
chance to meet him or even know of him until
after his death (I was born the year Stand By Me
came out and it is my favorite movie) I cannot
believe the impact he has had on my life.
I am a member of many environment groups and a
vegan and I find River Phoenix to be one of the
greatest role models in history.
He was and will always be one of the
greatest actors of the 21st century.
Let us never forget his life and
stop trying to remember his death.
