He represented the best in all of us. Dignity, grace, courage, joy. We simply loved him. How many of us watched his films with pride. A defiant Black man who would shatter hate with love. His passing is piercing. How do we honor such a man? By living his example. It’s not too late. In the face of so much confusion, we can be still and harness what’s important in life. We must bear witness to each others’ humanity.
Goodbye Sir Sidney Poitier.
