I can´t believe this...
Steve Irwin. Australian khaki clad dare-devil died at the age of 44 today. You all must have seen him somehwere on TV. Jay Leno, National Geography and Animal Planet. Everywhere.
I used to scedule my classes around his show. I even looked at snakes when he was holding them up and explaining how beautiful they are. He was killed when a stingray barb punctured his chest while he was filming an underwater documentary on the Barrier Reef.
I remember screaming at the television "Steve, will you put down that King Cobra right now, I know it is beautiful and all...but it is an accident waiting to happen!"
His life is so inspiring, he did exactly what he loved, from an early age on. He did it well too. He knew his field so well and with it probably its dangers too..."
Still, I just can´t belive it. There are no words.
"Apparently with no surprise
To any happy Flower
The Frost beheads it at its play -
In accidental power -
The blond Assassin passes on -
The Sun proceeds unmoved
To Measure off another Day
For an Approving God."
