Nimoy had more positive impact on more people than most politicians, religious leaders, etc. At a time when l was surrounded by irrational, violent, addicted adults, his portrayal of Spock inspired me to think critically, survive hardships and to become better than my environment. Spock is as made up as any god, and far more worthy of reverence. Nobody kills anyone over Spock.
I hope we will do a tribute at the next comicon.
