The sight horrified many of his fans. When LeonardNimoy was brought into an airport on a wheel chair with a gas mask on his face the actor looked quite ill. He has COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). This affects the lungs badly and is caused by smoking cigarettes.
Recently, Leonard broke the news on a social network site too. He furthermore said that “Grandpa says quit now!” and added the slogan he was famous for: “LLAP” which stands for live long and prosper.
I quitsmoking 30 yrs ago. Not soon enough. I have COPD. Grandpa says, quit now!! LLAP
Nimoy was the focal point of millions once as the taciturn and mysterious Mr. Spock on the TV series Star Trek. He played the Vulcan alien life form and intrigued many who found something different about his character on the television screen space odyssey.
The ailment that Leonard Nimoy has cannot be reversed. It decreases quality of life and makes breathing quite a hassle. That is why he has warned millions of his followers and fans not to make the same mistake he made so long ago. Had he quit in the nick of time maybe he wouldn’t have had to see this day when he was close to being an invalid. But it was too late now.
However, he is still participating in life to the limits of his ability. Life may be tough but it is the man who can smile through the tears that is a survivor. And he is the one who deserves our praise.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
