The majority of River Phoenix's short 23 years on this earth was dedicated to making music and movies. Not only did he do what he loved, he was able to make a great change in thousands of people's lives and was a great defender of animals and the Earth. River Phoenix was a never ending fighter for what was right. He was original, natural, caring, sensitive, talented, and a beautiful soul. His deeply moving performances and natural talent are well deserving of a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.
