"YOU HAVE LEFT THE WORLD MUCH BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT, AND IF YOU ASK ME, NOBODY COULD DO ANY BETTER THAN THAT."
A year ago today we not only lost one of the finest authors of our age, but a truly inspiring man who continues to spread understanding and love. Terry Pratchett used words to point a mirror at humanity, forcing us to examine the world around us. Growing up, there was always one of his books stashed somewhere, much to the annoyance of my teachers and he taught me to think, to question and the importance of a hard boiled egg. In times of need what started out as an escape to Discworld often ended up as words of comfort and help. This was especially true when it came to his last book 'The Shepherd's Crown' and for that I am grateful.
