This has been a crazy couple of months and years. I mean musicians, athletes, actors/actresses are dropping like flies. It is definitely a reality check for us regular people. Here is my list of greats that have left too soon, sorry if I've forgotten a few: Bernie Mack (1957-2008), Isaac Hayes (1942-2008), Michael Jackson (1958-2009), Farrah Fawcett (1947-2009), Steve McNair, and the guy that said "Heeeeeerrrrrreeeee's Johnny!!", I got it..Ed McMahon (forgive me but I cant remember his name).
It's amazing the affect that these people have on our lives. And what's funny is that when they're alive you would've never thought that someone who u didn't know, knew most of the words to all their big hits, or have never been to a concert could have such a profound affect on your life. I mean when I heard about Michael and Bernie Mac I was horribly sadden. I couldn't believe how sad I was. And I actually cried about Michael. I couldn't talk to anybody. And I was thoroughly overcome by sorts of emotions..I didn't know what hit me.
It just shows that you don't have to know a person to have true compassion and respect for what they have accomplished. The world was touched by these people.
I almost feel like there has to be a conspiracy or something. Especially in regards to all of these prominent black men that are dying (hate to bring this to a race thing..lol). But for real..its crazy.
With all these recent deaths, it helps one to stay focused on the here and now. We all have to remember that both life and death waits for nobody. None of us is blessed w/ time. And don't put off for tomorrow what you could do today. Live your dreams, no matter what your friends or family has to say about it. And realize that sometimes it's not meant for others to understand your dreams. Sometimes you gotta go @ it solo.
Something to think about...
May all those who have left us rest now...u will always be remembered
