Dick Gregory: the passing of a legend and a prophetic voice

I have read and received the news of Dick Gregory’s passing with sadness. His presence will be greatly missed and his absence from the world of social activism deeply felt.

To his credit, he has left an indelible mark in history. Dick Gregory made the world a little bit better by trying to do good. He was a force to reckon with because he exercised good stewardship over the gift of superior wit that he received from the Creator. He honed that gift and used it to try and improve the quality of life for others. He did so in part by raising consciousness about the need for social justice, including equality.
What a wonderful way to live: to influence the world for good!

My hope is Mr. Gregory realized the positive impact he had on many.

God rest his soul and comfort all those who love him.
