You know, people die everyday – people from every class, race, gender, age, creed, color, national origin. Take your pick. No ‘group’ will ever go a day without loosing someone.
The collective group known as ‘Hollywood’ has lost a few recently, including today, the pitchman, Billy Mays. When Michael Jackson died, the media coverage of anything useful, and important, stopped. Nothing was said of the issues in Iran, or the Waxman bill – just about Michael Jackson. Because, you know, dying celebrities takes precedence over men, women, and children dying in the cause of freedom.
I would have preferred the cable news networks give 24 hour coverage to Iran instead of Michael Jackson.
So, as I was looking over the Google Trends today, I noted that a hot search term today was:
Well, the answer is simple really –
And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, (Hebrews 9:27 NKJV)
People die, you know, and we should not trivialize that, but we have great issues of our age to deal with which should take precedence over the death of a few celebrities.
We will all die, but let us live for others until then.
