Today the world has become a little less beautiful.

Pumzika kwa urahisi, Uhura.

She almost quit Star Trek.

But someone talked her into staying.

That someone was...Martin Luther King Jr..

I had heard her recount that story during an interview.

Why did you post this? It has nothing to do with the topic of the thread.

And Zoe Saldana seems to be still alive. So why are you wishing her "peace and comfort"?

Lighten up.  Ms. Saldana and Ms. Nichols became friends after Ms. Saldana took over the role of Uhura in the Star Trek reboot.  Losing someone who is both a friend and an inspiration is hard for some people to take.

Lightening up is not the issue. I just didnt know the reference.

Apologize to Twister.
