I Shall Miss You “Andrew Breitbart” ~ You shined the light of truth for what Journalism was and could be again.

Andrew Breitbart lived a life worth living by committing himself to shine the light of journalistic truth for the public to see.  I did not know that Mr. Breitbart suffered from heart damage.  It is my sincerest hope that he left us in a bursting, blaze of light, to heaven’s cradling armsRest peacefully, Mr. Breitbart, knowing that you gave more of yourself to the “common good” than any other journalist of your time.

RIP ~ Andrew Breitbart ~ 1969 to 2012


YiT,  Shelly

With a terrible feeling of pain and loss we announce the passing of Andrew Breitbart.

Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.

We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.

Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.

Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:

I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.

Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

Andrew is at rest, yet the happy warrior lives on, in each of us.
