Ray Bradbury died yesterday. Beyond stories and novels, I think his greatest legacy is that he has caused people to question things. When you start to question, you have to decide all of the reasons that you believe or don’t. You form real convictions. It doesn’t really matter if you agree Bradbury or not- what matters is that you had to decide what you thought about what he said. Was/Is technology taking over our lives? How much control should a government have? How dangerous are books?
One of my favorite short stories is The Veldt. It’s a little dark, but full of questions. I love questions that start good conversations.
