RIP Kelly Preston.  There are no words for John Travolta.  Off the top of my head it's been so long ago but feels not too long ago that John and Kelly lost their son.  I imagine Travolta will do his best to live life and move on, but it will not be easy.

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Congressman John Lewis has passed.  Rep. Lewis served for over half a century.  The man died at 80 but not before a successful life as a leader and role model.  RIP Sir.
