Today marks the 43rd anniversary of Walt Disney’s death in 1966 from complications related to lung cancer. That may have marked his physical death, but his legacy is very much alive. From the first Alice films, to the parks and his vision for a better life for all, and all the lives he affected along the way, he made an impact where ever he went.
My birth was still three years away when Walt died. I’m not evangelizing Walt, he was no saint, but his philosophy that “quality will out end the end” has had a big of impact on my life as any saint. Today I would love to hear how Walt Disney and his works have affected you. What in his creations makes you come back day after day to his work and say, “this is good”?
Thanks Walt! You left us too soon.
