Needs Of The Many Outweigh The Needs Of The One
The New York Times reported a short while ago that Actor Leonard Nimoy passed away today.
Growing up I can remember all the nights I gathered with family and sometimes over a friend's house to watch episodes of "Star Trek," a show which became more popular through years of reruns on television than it ever was during it's short lived time on network television from 1966-1969.
Who among us does not remember the scene from the motion picture "Star Trek 2: The Wrath Of Khan" where Kirk runs to Spock who trapped himself inside a chamber to save the ship's crew from disaster? Born from this was the line that all Trekkie's will eternally remember, "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few" and then Kirk adds..."Or the needs of the one."
As you've moved onto your next destination Mr. Nimoy....we say, "Live long and prosper."
