The list is pretty interesting, but what got me was a quote from Jim Henson.
In 1990, Jim Henson, the creator of Sesame Street’s Muppets, died suddenly of a bacterial pneumonia. In the wake of his passing, two memorial services (one in New York and one in London) were staged wherein both characters from Henson’s “The Muppet Show” and “Sesame Street performed”, including a heartrending version of “Being Green” by Big Bird. Henson’s only request was that no one wear black. Although the services were open to the public, they were not televised, and only certain recorded segments exist. Along with Muppet performances and eulogies from friends and collaborators, excerpts from Henson’s correspondence to his children were read, including this passage:
“Please watch out for each other and love and forgive everybody. It’s a good life, enjoy it.”
We should all do this and things would be so much better for everyone. I know that I’m going to try my hardest to do this.
