I could never hold his sword, but I will take up mine again

The news of Andrew Breitbart‘s untimely passing is obviously hitting everyone hard right now. Right now I’m a little numb to it, for reasons I don’t care to go into, but I can hardly miss the massive sense of loss I’m seeing on my Twitter feed right now.

I feel no shame in saying I could never do what Andrew did, if only because he had the personality to be such a public figure, simultaneously doing everything in his power to fight what’s wrong in the country, and taking volley after volley of slings and arrows with a smile.

I can’t be Breitbart, maybe none of us can be, but we can be ourselves, and step up our own involvement to fill the void left for us this morning.

There are certainly enough of us to do it. They can’t take us all out. We can mourn today. But tomorrow, let’s roll.
