Celebrity

Standard

I am also sorry to hear about Robin Williams’ death.  He was a great talent.  Like almost everyone on the planet, I enjoyed his vast body of work.  I’m so very sorry for his family.

I only hope the bright light in all of this is the fact that his passing is giving a voice to mental illness.

However……..

I have way too many Facebook friends who have posted about crying over his death, etc……It actually irritates me.  I think it’s because I’m jealous.  I’m jealous of the fact that so many people have NOT experienced the loss of a personal loved one that they can get so emotionally torn up over a celebrity passing.

Because let me tell you….once you lose a close loved one, many things are put into perspective.  And crying over the death of a celebrity, even one I appreciated, just will not be happening.  Not anymore.
