I really had to give this some time to think about it. I have children and am quite close with my nephews and nieces and i would say without doubt that most would find the video of steves death quite "disturbing", To say the very least..BUT, with a news media that is compelled to show lebanese and iraqi children with variuos limbs blown off and thier dead sprawled in very contorted position imaginable, how can you so quickly dismiss the idea? Steve Irwin was, for quite a lot of us, a personal hero and sometimes our heros die quite suddenly. Remember not that long ago that that poor contractor whose head was cut off with a knife, found its way to the internet? I bet a lot more people watched it then who would like to admit! But why do i have a feeling that in the future steves video will surface because in the media you know as well as I,that it is all about money. Yea you say,"no way they will show it" but lets pray that if it somehow gets out no matter how that happens that if it is possible, his kids wont ever see it... didnt ,mean to disturb you guys but this world can be an awful place to be sometimes...
