…because I can’t stand the international sob fest!
Since Prince passed, we have drowning in media sob stories. Yes it is sad, a man died far too early, but this happens to thousands of people every day. Let us get some perspective. He was a musician that some people listened too. There was a time when he was the butt of much humour because he changed his name to a symbol.
What makes us glorify celebrity death, and to act as though our life will cease to be because they are no longer breathing? Then there is the rehashing of other celebrity deaths and on it goes.
In most cases, they saved no lives, often wasted their own, and made a lot of money along the way. Often then did not value that money and its power, but used it to indulge and take from our earth.
So no more celebrity deaths. Not that they are to be granted eternal life, but may they all live to be very very old, like movie stars from the golden era, so that they are no more than a blip on the evening news. No more fans rending their denim jackets on the footpath outside their homes with wasted flowers. Give the attention to your families, to your community, to people who make a difference to others not just to themselves – to someone you actually know.
