Like any other departure, let’s start with the death announcement–hosted today by Leanne Shirtliffe–before we proceed.
Knox McCoy once asked me what movie quote I would put on my tombstone. I said I would go with Morgan Freeman’s line from The Shawshank Redemption: Get busy living or get busy dying.
Hard for me to argue with that pick, but it’s time for a new epitaph, especially now that we’re laying ol’ eduClaytion to rest. So I thought it would be fun to let you all take a shot at writing a one-liner for the tombstone to this site. I’ve already got my official pick in mind but would like to offer a new DVD copy of The Shawshank Redemption to whomever comes up with the best alternative. It could be from a book or movie or just something you conjure from your own mind. Maybe you’ll even persuade me as you brilliant folks so often have in the past. Have fun with it and leave your ideas in the comments section.
Oh I better cut this off before I get all weepy and start crying into a jar of peanut butter. As Dale Horvath told us in The Walking Dead, “Words are paltry things,” so I’ve put together a short video tribute for you as a way to all at once say thanks and goodbye and can somebody please for the love of all that is holy start producing videos for me that don’t look like they were made by that super technologically inept relative we all have?
Sorry. I’m better now. I guess these emotions are making me all ragey and stuff.
Anyway, here’s the final vintage eduClaytion video. Be sure to read the obit and then share your thoughts and potential epitaphs in the comments section.
Be loved and blessed and share the rest.
Did you read the obituary?
What should the eduClaytion tombstone say?
