Jean-Michel Cousteau reflects on the passing of Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury

My father and I had the privilege to meet Ray Bradbury and to brainstorm with him several times on where society was headed and what we might do to influence a more favorable direction.  We socialized with him a little and experienced a great human being. He dreamt of a more spiritual humanity, a move away from a materialistic society. He was a great writer of his generation who made me dream.

We will miss you Ray.
