A Hero Departs

I was shocked to read this morning about Steve Irwin's death. Its a huge loss not just for Australia but for humanity. He was a true hero who loved the wildlife, loved being close to the nature; sometimes too close. In the end, that's what got him. He attracted a lot of negative publicity for doing crazy stunts like holding his year old son while feeding the deadly crocs, but he was a showman; not that it gave him a license to risk a kid's life. He was a loudmouth but you could not not admire the man for what he was doing. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Crikey... you legend... you will be missed.
