EDIT: This flash was not meant to showcase my art or my creativity. It was not meant to entertain or make fun of Walter. It is not my intention to exploit this event and use it to glorify myself. This flash is simple, and like the Vietnam memorial, its simplicity lets those who view it remember their own memories and experiences. You all have your own opinion of the man, whether bad or good, he has had some influence in your life. So remember what you can of him, like when you first heard his news casts, or when you started watching CBS news. Treasure those memories. For memories are much more colorful and powerful than a tribute or memorial honoring someone.

He is gone. An iconic figure that has changed our lives. His news was strong, his reports were powerful. Walter Cronkite, a man who shall be known forever, throughout history as, THE KING OF NEWS!! Vote 5 to dedicate your love.

The mother ship has started beaing up round 1

Stealin Michael Jackson's thunder!

Meh. MJ & Cronkite are a bit the same in a way. Both started out successful and rose quickly. Then went off the deep end and became full of themselves. Of course, it's uncouth to dis a person during a memorial. So, I'll merely say "rest in peace, Mr. Cronkite." I think he was the person who created the whole odd news talking voice phenomenon.

As for the artistic merit of this submission...the intent was good, but the content is lacking.


Not much but it is sad...

Awesome, wonderful.

I thoughtful memorial to a great man. "Great job!"
