2016. What a year. We’ve seen so many celebrities, actors, politicians, and so many others “kick the can” already and it is only April 26th.
David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Glenn Frey, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Rob Ford, and now Prince.
Don’t get me wrong, I have had a lot of respect for people such as Frey, Rickman, Prince, and all of the musicians, celebrities, and actors, but I feel more at a loss when a politician or someone in the military or someone in the law enforcement community passes away.
Call me a hypocrite or something like that, but it’s true. We should be mourning the loss of the ones that make our own (not just the United States) country great.
Ghali? He was a diplomat from Egypt and the Secretary-General of the United Nations.
Ford? He may have been controversial, but he made Canada right.
All the military personnel and first responders? They give their all every single day to make sure we stay safe no matter what is going on in the world. They are also there when we need them and stay with us until the event is over. Despite what some people say, I’m always thankful for the military and those that respond when there is an issue.
Those are the ones we should be more concerned about as a society, not so much a famous person. How many of them actually know that said famous person when they pass away?
Think about that before you pay your respects and change your Facebook around for “said” famous person.
