Goodbye, Mr. Spock

On Friday, February, 27, actor, director, poet and photographer Leonard Nimoy died at the age of 83.

Taking a cue from the phrase, "art imitates life", here's the eulogy and video clip of Mr. Spock's funeral in "Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan":

"We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet it should be noted, in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. 

He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one; and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings.

Of my friend, I can only say this: Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels; his was the most...human."

Rest in peace, Mr. Spock.
