R.I.P. Chalton Heston

Saturday marked the passing of a truly larger than life American, Charlton Heston. He had such memorable roles in countless films, and he played even more impressive roles throughout his long lifetime.

Heston was a major contributor, fund-raiser and activist for the civil rights movement of the 60's.

And he was the President of the National Rife Association for 5 years.

I'm sure he was nothing like the roles he played in the movies. But I have nothing but respect for this man. He was married to the same woman for 64 years! And he did not just talk about our individual liberties, he actively sought to protect them! What a man!

Can this nation still produce men of his caliber?

Only now can someone pry his gun from his cold dead fingers.
