Sad news indeed.  Rest in Peace, Mr Zelman.
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value."   T Paine

Aaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!! :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

I will try and focus on celebrating the life, inspiration and dedication.
I literally just started rereading his seminal masterpiece.  It all has much more urgency now.

God bless and protect Kenneth Royce, my other pillar of prescient wisdom...

Time for the next generation to step forward.

My deepest sympathy to the Zelman family .
I had met Aaron at several events in past years . He was always extrememly polite, soft spoken and well versed on the many topics we discussed.
Aaron and I had many hours on the phone --- I learned so much from him . I  recall buying the music "Les Miserable" at his suggestion . We have had many hours enjoyment because of his recommendation.

His "Grandpa Jack " comic books including "Gun control kill's kids" are a work of genius. Further his films "Innocents Betrayed " and dial 911 and die are works that will educate thinking American's as long as such exist.

Aaron Zelman has now joined the ranks of other heroes .  He will be missed beyond words.

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Mr. Zelman was a man who knew very well what he was about.

He will be missed by all who knew him and knew of him.

My Prayers are with his family and friends.

Rest Mr. Zelman, you have earned it.

I never met the man, I'm sad to say.  The only consolation is that the impetus he gave to JPFO will continue on.
A rifle cannot win a war; it is just a tool.  Wars are fought and won in the hearts and minds of the people.
