Okay, I need to rant..
I was just watching the news, and I caught part of a report on
entertainer who performed for decades. He made millions, he spent
millions, and he did a lot of things that make him a villian to many
people. I understand that his death would affect a lot of people, and
I respect those people who mourn his death, but that isn't the point
of my rant.
Why is it that when ONE man dies, the whole of America loses their
minds with grief. When a man dies whose only contribution to the
country was to ENTERTAIN people, the Amercian people find the need to
flock to a memorial in Hollywood , and even Congress sees the need to
hold a "moment of silence" for his passing?
Am I missing something here? ONE man dies, and all of a sudden he's a
freaking martyr because he entertained us for a few decades? What
about all those SOLDIERS who have died to give us freedom? All those
Soldiers who, knowing that they would be asked to fight in a war,
still raised their hands and swore to defend the Constitution and the
United States of America . Where is there moment of silence? Where
are the people flocking to their graves or memorials and mourning over
them because they made the ultimate sacrifice? Why is it when a
Soldier dies, there are more people saying "good ridence," and "thank
God for IEDs?" When did this country become so calloused to the
sacrifice of GOOD MEN and WOMEN, that they can arbitrarily blow off
thier deaths, and instead, throw themselves into mourning for a "Pop
I think that if they are going to hold a moment of silence IN CONGRESS
for Michael Jackson, they need to hold a moment of silence for every
service member killed in Iraq and Afghanistan . They need to PUBLICLY
recognize every life that has been lost so that the American people
can live their callous little lives in the luxory and freedom that WE,
those that are living and those that have gone on, have provided for
them. But, wait, that would take too much time, because there have
been so many willing to make that sacrifice. After all, we will never
make millions of dollars. We will never star in movies, or write hit
songs that the world will listen too. We only shed our blood, sweat
and tears so that people can enjoy what they have.
Sorry if I have offended, but I needed to say it. Feel free to pass
this along if you want.
Remember these five words the next time you think of someone who is
serving in the military;
"So that others may live..." . As we all know, Jackson died the other day. He was an
1) Don’t worry about what people think; they don’t do it very often.
2) Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car.
3) If you must choose between 2 evils, pick the 1 you’ve never tried before.
4) A conscience is what hurts when all of your other parts feel so good.
5) Men are from earth and women are from earth. Deal with it!
6) No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes.
7) There is always 1 more imbecile than you counted on.
8) Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.
9) Someone who thinks logically provides nice contrast to the real world.
10) It ain’t the jeans that make your butt look fat.
11) There is a very fine line between being on MySpace and mental illness.
12) People who want to share their religious views with you, almost never want you to share yours with them.
13) You should not confuse your career with your life.
14) The 1 thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that we ALL believe we are good lovers.
QUESTION: Would you like to add a Rule(s) of Life to this list???
Have you ever wondered which hurts the most?
Saying something and wishing you hadn't? or Saying nothing and wishing you had?
I guess the most important things are the hardest things to say. Don't
be afraid to tell someone you love them.
If you do, they might break your heart...if you don't, you might break
Your heart decides whom it likes and whom it doesn't.
You can't tell your heart what to do. It does it on its own........when
you least suspect it, or even when you don't want it to.
Have you ever wanted to love someone with everything you had, but that
other person was too afraid to let you?
Too many of us stay walled up because we are too afraid to care too
much...for fear that the other person does not care as much, or even at
Have you ever denied your feelings for someone because your fear of
rejection was too hard to handle?
We tell lies when we are afraid... afraid of what we
don't know, afraid of what others will think, afraid of what will be
found out about us.
But every time we tell a lie, the thing we fear grows stronger.
Life is all about risks and it requires you to jump.
Don't be a person who has to look back and wonder what they would have
done, or could have had.
* What would you do if every time you fell in love you had to say
*What would you do if every time you wanted someone they would never be
*What would you do if you're best friend died tomorrow and you never got
to tell them how you felt? (even if it is that you don't care anymore)
*What would you do if you loved someone more than ever and you couldn't
*What would you do if you never got the chance to say I am friends with
all of my family and they know I love them?*
People live, but people die. I want to tell you that you are a friend.
If you died tomorrow (God Forbid) you would be in my heart.
Would I be in yours?
You might be best friends one year, pretty good friends the next year,
don't talk that often the next, and don't want to talk at all the year after
So, I just wanted to say, even if I never talk to you again in my life,
you are special to me and you have made a difference in my life,
I look up to you, respect you, truly cherish you , most of all I CARE
Never did I ever think of the definition of a hero.
Is a hero someone who defends the innocent who can't defend themselves?
Does a hero need's to be arcane? Is a hero someone who thinks of others first?
Is a hero someone who faces dangers in times of peril despite all the odds? Is a hero someone who goes that little extra mile against all odds to make the world a better place?
Are heroes seen as heroes because they are intellectual, strong, fast, braves' danger or because they are arcane? No, a hero is someone who is hopeful in times when seen as all hope is gone, although hope may be frail it's hard to kill.
A hero is someone who is compassionate to others needs and difficulties, someone who is loyal in what they are doing but with wisdom.
Show me a person with the attributes of being merciful, compassionate, loyal, sincere and wise and I will not only show you a hero but a Legend.
A hero thinks of others before they think of themselves
A hero will die to protect
A hero can be of any age, any colour
A hero can be man, woman or child
A hero is courageous, loving and brave
A hero will never complain
A hero can be made in one act of compassion
Or years of tender loving care
Some hero's are remembered, whilst many are left forgotten
Hero's are angels in disguise, saving precious innocent lives
