Crocodile Tears

Last night, after all my chores, I watched 20/20 with Barbara Walters. She had an hour long special with Terri Irwin, the widow of Steve Irwin. The program had me in tears because they had such a love story.

The program illustrated Steve's career and conservation efforts. It also detailed their story, how they met, fell in love, got married, had kids and worked together. She referred to his loss as losing "her prince". Yet, she considers herself blessed for having him in her life and mentioned that if she had to do it all again, even with the final consequence, she would have done it all the same. She shared his passion for conservation and wild life and you can tell that her heart is breaking.

It was such a heartfelt tribute to Steve.
