Julie Nimoy, Leonard's daughter, today proposed erecting a 25-foot-high memorial in Boston to her father, in the form of the "live long and prosper" hand gesture he made famous.
It will honor @TheRealNimoy and will be a symbol for peace and tolerance worldwide. Dad would be so happy that this positive message could resonate with people for yrs to come.
Nimoy did not suggest a specific location for the memorial to the West End native and English High graduate, but a logical choice might be outside Beacon Hill's Vilna Shul, where, the ark in the former synagogue features the now familiar gesture from back in the day when it was an ancient Jewish religious symbol - one that congregation leaders made during services.
Also jumping on the Live Long and Prosper in Boston Campaign: William Shatner, who tweeted today:
This needs to happen! Leonard was very proud of his Boston roots.
