#IamAndrewBreitbart

Sad.  And grateful for what Andrew Breitbart accomplished in such a short lifetime.

I spent quite a bit of time yesterday reading and watching videos and the sadness was dispelled often when I was reminded of the funny and fun loving side of him.  At the bottom of this post is a photo he would probably have enjoyed very much.

I woke up this morning saddened by the loss and lonely without his presence; he had long been a source of comfort and advice for me because he knew better than anyone the challenges faced by citizen journalists. Better than anyone he understood the effort and energy required to fight. Not just the big fights, but also the small fights. Every article, every email, every tweet was a battle to get the truth out despite the forces that were working against him. Every day was a new struggle against the forces of conformity and compliance.

Thank you James O’Keef for putting into words exactly what I think Breitbart would have wanted conveyed – Lan astaslem – “I will not surrender” – the battle rages on.
