It is with great sadness and grief that I report that Andrew Breitbart has passed away, at the too-young age of 43. According to Big Journalism, “Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles.”
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.
Words completely fail me right now. There will be more to say later, but right now, all I feel is shock and devastation at the loss of a friend, and a man who was loved by many people whom I consider friends. My heart goes out to them now, and in the days ahead.
Andrew had a great many detractors, many of whom I also consider friends, and although he reveled in their hatred, I hope every decent person can respect the grief of his friends, and their own humanity, enough to grant silence.
