    Started My Downward Spiral Last Year

    I don't know why, but when I read about Steve's death last year it was like I lost a best friend.  that event was the second that started me in a downward spiral of depression and lethargy that is still lingering.  The first was a few weeks before when my wife caught...

    He Changed My World.

    "I have no fear of losing my life - if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it." -Steve Irwin. Growing up as a youngster, I highly admired Steve Irwin-his passion for wildlife and conservation led me to my love for all animals, whether...

    I Was Reminded Last Night.

    I watched Don't Say a Word for the first time in quite a while.  There is a scene where the mother is lying in bed with her broken leg and Crocidle Hunter is shown on her TV.  I got a chill right then and remembered just how saddened I was when I...

    My Dream About Steve Irwin

    Last night 11/16/09 I was dreaming I was being chased and Steve Irwin was a doctor trying to help me. I was in some hospital and crouched up in a corner and wouldn't talk to anyone and Steve came in with a doctors coat on and said bring her to my office. He was telling me that...

    My 100th Story Is Dedicated to You

    I remember 10th grade, our final involved tossing around ideas of celebrities who are really admirable. It was a short list, but we could all agree that Steve Irwin was at the top of that list. Mr. Irwin took a job where he knew that any day could be his last, and he did it...

    Crikey! He's Gone!

    Steve was the best! He made nature exciting and inspiring. I loved watching the Crocodile Hunter, and even though I really didn't like Croc Files, my little sister loved it! I already had a love for animals when I started watching Steve Irwin on Croc Hunter, but I developed...

    It Was One of Those Deaths....

    where I know I will remember where I was and what I was doing when I heard the news. I remember when he first came on T.V, he was hilarious. When he made it big overseas I was so glad we had a "true blue" doing us proud. He did some really special things over here and...

    R.I.P. The Crocodile Hunter

    My Tribute To Steve

    Animals have always been magical to me. Maybe since i couldn't see them, they took on the mythical characteristics of unicorns and the like. Or maybe I'm just one of those people who is fortunate enough to feel a connection with them and their place in the universe. When I was a...

    Funny??? Hmmm...let Me Think About It.

    While I quite liked him, I remembered how my Dad was constantly making fun of his accent. It wasn't very nice, yet he thought it was hilarious.

    He Was The Only Celeb I'D Ever Actually Want To Meet

    Sucks that he died before I ever had a chance to meet him. I grew up watching him. He's probably one of the main reasons why I love animals so much. In grade school, when we had to write about our "hero" he was always my one and only choice.
