Remembering Carradine and his legacy

Upon hearing the news of his passing on Thursday, many iReporters remembered David Carradine, star of the popular “Kung Fu” television series and known as Bill in “Kill Bill”, and how he touched their lives.

 

In some cases, iReporters shared their personal experiences with Carradine. lyonrocker performed as a drummer in a band with Carradine. He played at lyonrocker’s hometown of Dolgeville, New York a few years ago, something he calls a true honor. "The greatest thing David ever said to me, was that 'I finally get to hear my music like I imagined it,” he said.

 

TheDimmitt shared another story from his radio days with the iReport community, about an interview with Carradine several years ago. He learned how closely connected Carradine was with his character on “Kung Fu”, even later in life. The Dimmitt called it “an experience I will never forget."


BarbRad says that she was “devastated” and cried when she first learned of Carradine’s death. She was a devoted viewer of “Kung Fu”, as well as his documentaries on the History Channel. “I actually feel like a gap has left in my life,” she said.

 

Pixel went to Carradine’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and spoke with fans there who shared their memories, one of whom seemed to be tearing up talking about him.

When one individual pass away, he will be most remembered on his good deeds.It's really worth giving tribute to individual who have touched others life or those with extra ordinary talent such as Mohamed Altoumaimi, he is making headlines as a math wiz. Mohamed Altoumaimi, a high school student in Sweden, originally from Iraq, has come up with equations and numbers using Bernoulli numbers, a numerical sequence and mathematical formulae conceived by mathematician Jacob Bernoulli. Money lenders might want to get him a loan so he can go to college and then join their staff. Bernoulli numbers have a number of applications in physics, cryptography, number theory and computer science, and are only reserved normally to seasoned pros. He's already being pursued by universities, and he's on his way to a bright career in mathematics, which means scholarships, accolades, and no installment loans for Mohamed Altoumaimi.
