The death of the American actor, film director, photographer, and poet, Leonard Nimoy, on Friday, February 27, 2015 made me feel sad. But I also felt joy because Nimoy was "Mr. Spock" on the original "Star Trek" (1966-1969), and as Spock, Nimoy entertained me and sparked my imagination - helping me to envision a world that was larger than I had ever imagined. He also gave me hope that we could make a world that was better for everyone.
