“When we are really honest with ourselves we must admit our lives are all that really belongs to us. So it is how we use our lives that determines the kind of men we are.” – Cesar Chavez

Bob Simon, reporter, knew how to use words. His stories were captivating, his reporting honest, emotional, from the heart. This past week we lost him in a terrible car accident, life cut short, no more stories to tell. I was a fan of his and always enjoyed his 60 Minute broadcasts. If you have never heard his reporting, or want to enjoy his delightful style one last time, tune in to 60 Minutes, this Sunday, Feb 15 at 7pm on CBS. They will be doing a special on him.
