Sad...


I am very sad that Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter was killed yesterday. Last night after all the revelry at my cousin's house, I came home and saw this sad news on the net. When my head finally hit the pillow, I was still thinking about his wife and his kids.

My father dropped dead at the same age as Steve Irwin, 44. I was a lot older than his children who are 8 and 2. I was three weeks away from my 21st birthday, I was in college and could at least decipher what was happening to me and my family. Those kids are so young and his wife needs to figure out what to do now without her husband's strength and support.

Certainly puts the unemployment issue into a better perspective for me. This too shall pass.

It is a sad day... he had so much more to give the world, and that was cut short in the prime of his life.

I agree. It does put things into perspective

I am so sad about this. Steve Irwin brought joy into our house with his antics and his love of animals.

I'm so sorry about your dad. He went much too soon.
