R.I.P… See ya Steve

Filed under: My Life — happychick @ 6.38p09

Yesterday a man named Steve Irwin died yesterday. I’m going to assume you’ll all know who he is (I hear he is/was big in
America)… But just in case.

The man was a father, a husband, and a crocodile hunter. He dealt with the most dangerous of creatures, and he treated them with such respect…

He was a true Aussie- he was part of us all. And he died doing what he loved- stung in the chest by a stingray.

As expected, the media went nuts. Bloody hell, it was crazy, and will be for the next few days. I guess it hasn’t really struck me yet. He wasn’t just an icon. He didn’t just sell us to tourists. He made us laugh. And he taught us things. He was a helluva Dad, a caring husband, the type of guy who everyone simply loves. God Bless.
