Sleep Well, Brother Ossie

"And we will know him then for what he was and is—a prince—our own black shining prince!"

Though brother Ossie Davis spoke those words nearly 40 years ago during his eulogy of Malcom X in Harlem, they seem so appropriate for him as well as we morn his passing. I have to admit that even though brother Ossie was 87, I was still shocked to hear that he passed today...
He was a talented, gentle presence that will surely be missed. All I can really think to say is 'Thank You' and Rest In Peace OD...
