So today Farrah Fawcett died of cancer thats is sad, for her family and those who knew her, a long drawn out illness is harsh on everyone involved.
I feel also for the old ladies in Kisli district of Kenya who are being burnt alive for being suspected witches, it's horrific.
11 people died in another bomb blast in Bagdad this morning, more son, daughters, fathers, mothers slain, it's a painful world.
Death is one of the few certain things in life, it's horrible when it comes quickly or can be prevented.
I'm sad that Michael Jackson is dead, his children have lost a father and his music gives me a soundtrack to help remember one or two of my early teenage girlfriends. My sadness will be fleeting because I didn't know him.
Then I think of the fact that every 3 seconds a child dies on our planet of a preventable, curable disease, and I wonder "where did we all go wrong?"
Every year 15 million children die of hunger, why does that not shock me!!!
And today the millions cry, we eat and drink while tomorrow they die, fact is fiction, Tv reality!!
We've lost perspective, totally lost it, media driven celebrity driven culture, has scored a massive victory today all on the back of a troubled genius, who may have been odd but was just the father of 3 kids.
