Walter Cronkite - Memory Eternal!
« on: July 17, 2009, 09:19:24 PM »
Veteran CBS news anchor Walter Cronkite departed this life at 7:42 PM this evening. He was 92.

May the Lord grant Walter pardon and remission of his sins, and remember him in His Kingdom.

"May he be granted Eternal Rest Among the Saints."

While I was was more  of a Huntley-Brinkley fan, I always respected Walter Cronkite as a devoted journalist, back in an era when an anchor's political preferences were not obvious when he reported the news, unlike today.

I'll always recall the LBJ quote, when Cronkite announced his opposition to the Vietnam War, after a video journal he prepared during a trip to Vietnam.  Referring to himself as "this reporter," he announced his opposition to America's role in the war.  LBJ was quoted to have said, "I've just lost America."

Lord, have mercy.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.
