This guy made us laugh and really learn a lot about animals and I was crushed when i woke up this morning and read the news. I cried with sadness. But when it happened he was doing what he does best talking and being with animals. "He went out with his boots on." a phrase from Secondhand lions.
Godspeed Steve Irwin.
A quote I found that I think describes him:
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
