Death of a hero

   Chinese Sir Lu Xun once said: someone is living, he is already dead; someone died, he is still alive. This befits well the late Crocdile hunter Steven Irwin. Despite public chastising of his dangerous behavior, involving putting his infantile son at the peril of a gator, he is nevertheless one of the most memorable figures in the course of environmental protection and wildlife exploration on stage. His gallantry against the most deadly and scary scenes nature has to offer overcame and entertained audience of all age. His devotion to nature, to his adventurous career and life, sets an example for every ambitious man on earth to work tireless and fearless, without expecting something like an early retirement or upstart business. The end coincides with the mean, as Steve taught us by his martyrdom.
