Another Celebrity Dead!
Hearing about 50 year old Michael Jackson’s death a few moments ago was quite shocking. I’m not a fan or a non-fan. He was just another person to me, but that doesn’t make the news less shocking. I felt the same way when I heard about the deaths of Bernie Mac and Anna Nicole Smith. I was just shocked. I guess these people are so “larger than life” that in the back of my mind, I expect them to live forever.
I’m not even sure why I’m writing about this. I never write about celebrities… I don’t see the point. But their unexpected deaths do seem to affect me, regardless of how I feel about them. I rarely watch the news… too depressing. So, I also just found out about Farrah Fawcett’s death. Damn. Okay, her’s wasn’t exactly unexpected, but still.
It seems like celebrities are dropping like flies. Every time I turn on the news, another one is dead. Of course, this is true of us regular folks as well. It just isn’t publicized all over the place. I think this just shows how fragile life is, and that all of us need to take better care of ourselves. I know I do. Continued health to you and yours.
Thanks for reading.
