Let me just start with a disclaimer , This is just MY opinion and I am just a little ol blogger with a attitude sometimes . So what I have noticed this week was all of the Facebook and Twitter posts about the celebrities that have recently passed away . First off there was Chyna who was popular in the wresting world in the late 90’s early 2000’s , There was a ton of post about her and honestly how many people still followed her career ? And then there was Prince … He was of course huge back in the day and alot of old school rockers still rocked his CD on a road trip (we are guilty ourselves) . My point is I find it absurd the amount of post and RIP’s and pics that are posted after a celebrity passes away . If you aren’t following their careers currently don’t jump on the band wagon after they are gone for social media . I read post that read ” Ow my god I’m so sad and I’m going to miss them so much ” . Going to miss them ? Did you know them ? Did they call you on the weekends ? I may be wierd in my thoughts but I’m saying there are local celebrities you don’t know that pass everyday . For example , soldiers, teachers, doctors, cancer patients and I don’t see an overflow of facebook post about them or how much they are going to be missed even though they are the exact same kind of stranger to you personally as a wrestler or a singer who are both just a stage personality in reality . It is sad the amount of attention we invest into a stranger and just because they have expensive houses and tour buses they get more grief then a 4 year old who has had cancer their whole lives and lost the battle or a 18 year old man who puts on fatigues everymore morning before heading to the chow hall . And again this is just My opinion and do not expect any one to agreee nor disagree I am simply saying that maybe we should learn to focus on more important things that all around us on a daily basis.
Until next time… Cheers !
