The world is what it is today for what you gave its people. Counting losses, like the selfish people we are, the world will be a tired place without your visions to drive it on and forward. But looking back, “connecting dots”, the world learned to live through what you gave it, the way you forced it to own up to its dreams and turn them into reality. You always will be the fore-runner, the pioneer, the visionary- the one who rekindled hope and courage, and pushed us into a new era, a new world of exciting possibilities.
Today, on the fifth day of October, year 2011, the great Steve Jobs passed away. Heart-broken, and at a loss, the world mourns as one, and remembers with startling clarity the ways he has touched all our lives, in ways more than one.
We rejoice that we had the chance to be touched by your brilliance and inspired by your life, and death.
You live on, in our quest to be bigger than our dreams, beyond the limits of our imaginations.
Rest in Peace.
Steve Jobs is survived by his wife and four children. And generations of people, us, who will always remember him as the one who not only led, but paved the way, too.
