The passing of a literary genius...

"With computers, kids can connect and search libraries and the Encyclopedia Britannica, but if you don't teach them to read in the first place, they're not going to [log on], are they?" (Ray Bradbury's Speech to National School Board Association, 1995)

"For many Americans, the news of Ray Bradbury's death immediately brought to mind images from his work, imprinted in our minds, often from a young age. His gift for storytelling reshaped our culture and expanded our world. But Ray also understood that our imaginations could be used as a tool for better understanding, a vehicle for change, and an expression of our most cherished values. There is no doubt that Ray will continue to inspire many more generations with his writing, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends."   ~President Barack Obama

Mr. Bradbury brought me on far away adventures for witch I'll always be grateful. He adventured on Earth from August 22, 1920, until June 5, 2012.
