Popularity of One’s Death

What a week we had with all the deaths in the entertainment world–Michael Jackson, Farah Fawcett and Ed McMahon. While the passing of these individuals is worth some attention, it astonishes me that our media seems to overlook the deaths of those whom I consider much more important!

I’m not sure if you’re all up on the number of casualties in the war in Iraq, but as of today, 4,321 soldiers have died in the war in Iraq. It may shock many of you, but the hours the media has spent talking about the deaths of celebrities doesn’t even come close to the recognition they give to our brave men and woman who fight everyday for our freedoms.

There is something wrong with us when we idolize those who don’t make serious sacrifices on behalf of all Americans. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the music that superstars like Michael Jackson make, and what’s not to like about Farah Fawcett! What bothers me is that there are so many silent hero’s in the world and we need to spend more time honoring them.

No matter what you feel about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, these wars are taking place, and we need to honor and recognize the sacrifices of these men and women. In addition, we need to pay homage to the families of these soldiers who make concessions in their lives to allow those brave men and women to fight for us over seas.
