Re: In Memory Still Bright: Mira Furlan

I don't have words for how sad I feel about her passing. Just yesterday I pulled up on Youtube the clip of her in Severed Dreams advising her Earthforce adversary to " somewhere else."

I have often thought of both Delenn and Mira's stories giving me hope when I have felt a bit hopeless. I take comfort in the words she said so beautifully:

" Then I will tell you a great secret, Captain. Perhaps the greatest of all time. The molecules of your body are the same molecules that make up this station, and the nebula outside, that burn inside the stars themselves. We are starstuff. We are the universe made manifest, trying to figure itself out. And as we have both learned, sometimes the universe requires a change of perspective."

Rest In Peace, dear lady.
