Reading about his death on the front of the Sydney Morning Herald moved me. I would like to think that I would be couragous enough to sacrifice my life for someone I the age of 13 I don't know if I would have been prepared to do that- an act of bravery such as that at such a young age is so unique. It's people like Jordan who deserve the title of a hero- it makes me so angry that people like Jessica Watson and other 'sporting figures' have somehow falsely redefined what heros are.
Jordan's life was taken from him in such a tragic way and at such a young age. However, I'm sure that his bother, father and extended family are proud of his sacrifice, along with the rest of the nation. If only there were more people like Jordan in the world. Such a brave young boy.

The world is a dark place, but it has to be a dark place to see the stars.

RIP little man.
