I was sorry to hear this morning that Steve Irwin, better known as the Crocodile Hunter, was killed after getting stung in the chest by a Stingray. He was filiming a documentary in Australia when the fluke accident happened. I’m sure the details will come to light in the press in the days to come.
The thing I really liked about Steve was his non-stop enthusaism. Like a friend wrote, “That guy could make you get excited over an ant!”
He certainly lived life to the fullest. Recently on U.S. TV a series of shows featuredÂ Steve, his wife and kids traveling to different Western U.S. National Parks in a motorhome. You could tell his enthusasim was sincere. The whole family looked to be having a wonderful time as they explored nature and as Steve taught his children about the different wildlife found in each Park. I can’t image how hard his death must be on that beautful young family. He will certainly be missed.
