    My Hero went on his journey.

    Russell Means started on his journey home early this morning.

    He was 72.

    Sorry you have lost your hero.72 doesn't seem that old. I remember when I was a child thinking 40 was sooo old.

    When it comes your time to die,
    be not like those whose hearts are filled
    with the fear of death,
    so that when their time comes they weep
    and pray for a little more time
    to live their lives over again in a different way.

    Sing your death song and
    die like a hero going home.

    Not just a loss to his Indian Nation, but also to movies. I have a number of DVDs in which he appears and thus can enjoy for time to come. Vale Russell Means.

    I remember him as being one of the Great "Changers" of Modern American History. Many mourn his passing.

    I can't be sad, he is going home. His journey will take him to our ancestors.

    He was truly brave, truly courageous, a credit to his people and to all who feel the need to speak out and tell the truth. And, like all bigger than life persons, he was a mix of energy that invited some to criticize. But they didn't, wouldn't, couldn't become the man he was.

    Such a man of principles and talent is hard to find. I hope his family and friends are at peace.
