Happy 43rd Birthday to the most amazing person to ever walk in my world, River Phoenix! Another year has gone by and yet you are as alive as ever. You were a man of intrigue, mystery, and sensitivity. And for that we love and thank you. From your captivating acting to your incredible environmentalist work. You always be missed and remembered. Thank you for looking out for all us Rio fans everyday. You make our world beautiful. I love you. Always! <3333 :D :-*** - Claudia
Happy Birthday River Jude Phoenix
- August 23rd 1970 -
Rio would have been 43 today.
River was an amazingly kind, compassionate, sensitive, caring, intelligent, funny, talented and unique person.
An immensely talented actor and musician who cared deeply about the planet and every being on it. He wanted to change the world, to save it, and to open people’s eyes to the plight of the planet.
He wanted people to embrace life, to live now and to experience the wonders of nature and the world around us, to not take any thing for granted and to take care of and to appreciate what we have on this planet called Earth.
River was ahead of his time and gone way too soon, but he remains an inspiration through his acting roles and movies, his music and song writing, and through his compassion for all animals, people and the planet.
He is continually missed, always loved and forever in our thoughts and hearts.
'I don't want to sound like a hippy, but LOVE is the guiding power of the universe' - River Phoenix
I wish I could have something more special to contribute on here, but considering I haven’t really even come on this blog in so long, I’m not really sure how. But today would have been Riv’s 43rd birthday - which I think makes anything I can post special enough.
Well, all rambling aside, happy birthday, River! I never got to meet you, heck, or even live when you were still alive, but I’ve always felt really connected to you. You were so talented, and had such an amazing soul. Thanks for being my inspiration. I love you.
