Every time I hear about a famous person dying, I always do not know how to react. I can barely describe how I actually feel. It’s like I feel the sadness of the event without actually feeling sad. Unlike many people, I really cannot muster a tear over a famous person because I do not really know these people. It seems a bit illogical to me to cry over a stranger. I’ve always wondered if other people feel the same way I do.
Well, today I found out that Michael Jackson and Farah Fawcett died. Between the both of them, I can empathize more with Michael Jackson mourners than Farah Fawcett’s because I was an 80’s kid. I grew up listening to Michael Jackson. I even remember attempting the moonwalk. Certain childhood memories are linked to some of his songs. Nevertheless, I’m not sad. Once again, I recognize that this is a sad event. Nothing more…nothing less.
This brings me to this funny cartoon Mr Shell sent me.
How true about media coverage.
