Amazing how class acts like Mr. Heston will always be remembered and revered. Also amazing how dingbats like Obozo, Pelosi, etc. are soon forgotten or written off!

I was definitely a Charlton Heston fan.
He was a strong man.

We exert conscious effort to forget them even while they're still around.

A close family friend just died last week from that dreaded disease, it was a long hard decline. Good to remember folks in their prime.

Mr Heston will never be forgotten and always be remembered for the great man he is!
Amen to that. I liked him from the first time I ever saw him in a movie and of course subsequently, after getting to know his character, personality, and patriotic views through research.
A truly great man.

Forgive me for getting political here, but both Charlton Heston and Ronald Reagan were both Democrats that changed to staunch Conservative Republicans. There has to be a lesson there.

Thanks, opos. I read the poem before but the music on that video you shared makes it more powerful.

Thank you for that opos, it's moving in a very profound way. I will pass that along to my family.

That's a simple but effective way of looking at things. I also hope he was right with God, but that's between him and God.

God forbid the twitter generation will have this man, the one media and Hollywood are shoving down our throats, as their "Charlton Heston" 20 years from now:

George [Clooney] was in town to accept the Special Filmmaking Achievement Award from the National Board of Review. He made history at that event by wisecracking in a politically incorrect manner that "Charlton Heston announced again today that he is suffering from Alzheimer's."
When I asked the actor if this was going too far, he said simply, "I don't care. Charlton Heston is the head of the National Rifle Association; he deserves whatever anyone says about him." (Clooney is a heavy hitter against the gun lobby.) He's also graphically and fully informed about world events and embraces the label "political liberal," saying he grew up thinking that's what we were supposed to be in a democracy.

That's about as low class as it gets.

Another one whose movies I will never watch again. I haven't watched any of his movies in a long time anyway.
