Australian Journalist, Peter Harvey Passes Away

Legendary Australian journalist, Peter Harvey, passed away yesterday aged 68, from Cancer.  He had been working as a television journalist for the last 35 years.  During the last four decades, he's covered most of the world's most important and breaking news; from Vietnam through to when the Gulf War first broke out.  He has also been there through quite a few Australian leaders - such as Malcolm Fraser, Bob Hawke, Paul Keating and John Howard.  

He has traveled around the globe covering all kinds of stories on every event possible, bringing to us solid facts and being there when new facts were on hand.  

Personally, I've grown up with this reporter/jounalist on my television screen on 60 Minutes every Sunday night.  He's been a part of my life for a very long time; and I don't remember a time when he hasn't been there.  And now, he's passed away and gone, it's a sad time for writers, journalists and anyone in the writing arena.  May Peter Harvey Rest In Peace.

I have put in a couple of links for further reading below. I hope you all find the time to read them.
