My friends. I am truly saddened today at the news of death yesterday, June 21st of this beautiful being who taught us that 'we are not alone, we are not so utterly special, we are not so wise!' She opened my eyes and heart twenty-five years ago when first I learned of her. If you do not know about Koko, watch the video included here of her absolutely compassionate, tender interactions with the actor Robin Williams. They were good friends. We have lost an ambassador for the rest of the planet. I remember her signing once that humans are 'very stupid' while still having such compassion for us! What an advanced, enlightened being she was!! No doubt she will return in some form quite soon.
