Steve Irwin has died. A favorite among almost everyone has left us, the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin was swimming off the coast of Australia when he was attacked by a string ray, it’s barb piercing his chest resulting in his death. He was filming a documentary in Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef.
Steve Irwin was a hero of mine, not because of his outrageous antics on screen but because of what he represented, a true free spirit. He lived every moment to the fullest and loved everything around him, he wasn’t just a thrill seeker but someone who loved what he done and the animals he worked with. He had enough love for every piece of nature along with every Crocodile he had in his zoo, and enough left over to fill the hearts of his wife and two children.
I doubt I will ever find someone who lived his life as true to himself as Steve did and who could love every minute of it.
Rest in Peace, Crocodile Hunter.
