A Life of Passion
In case you didn’t hear Steve Irwin passed away today from–of all things–a stingray. I don’t really know why, but I am really sad that he is gone. I never was a regular watcher of any of his shows and most of the time he just sort of bugged me when I did watch. But he was a man who lived a life full of passion. He found what he loved and chased after it with all of who he was. There are so many people in this world who have made compromises, who have chosen to live small lives because they chose to ignore their dreams. Steve Irwin was not one of these. I don’t know about his relationship with God, but his love for life and his passion for what he cared about was an inspiration. I haven’t thought about him more than 2 seconds for the past few years, but now that he is gone I think I will miss him.
