We got Michael's tribute, now where is Farrah Fawcett's tribute?
Today was Michael Jackson's public memorial tribute with fans all around the world paying tribute to the late pop singer? The lucky ones who ended up getting tickets to the Staple Center in Los Angeles paid their tributes to Michael Jackson in many different ways, remembering Michael's life and what he had achieved. All of this has been very touching and very emotional and of course the media like CNN right down to ABC and NBC, CBS, and FOX have made sure that everyone world wide remembers Michael Jackson and never forget his legacy and what he did for the music industry alone.
Now all that fine and dandy. We should honor and pay tribute to Michael Jackson as a pioneer of pop music, but in God's eyes what makes Michael Jackson any different or anymore special then Farrah Fawcett? We hardly hear even a peep out of the media about the death of Farrah Fawcett who just happened to die the very same day as Michael Jackson.
Her tragedy and her legacy and all the struggles she went through haven't even been focused upon much, totally over shadowed completely by Michael Jackson untimely death. Now a days you can't even turn on the television or pick up a newspaper without seeing Michael Jackson's name being mentioned, yet the same can't be said for Farrah Fawcett the pin up girl of 1976. I remember having a poster of her back then, why I got rid of it is still beyond me to this day.
Farrah Fawcett was a beautiful woman born February 2, 1947 and her passing away on June 25, 2009 was just as tragic event as Michael Jackson's was, but yet she's hardly remembered and why is that? Why isn't this courageous woman who fought cancer to the very end with pride and dignity not given the same attention and recognition that Michael Jackson has received.
What makes Michael Jackson's death more important then that of Farrah Fawcett's? Or in other words what makes Michael Jackson's death that much more important then the death of any other human beings, like American and Canadian Soldiers who are killed in the line of duty. We don't see any of them getting the media coverage that Michael Jackson has gotten. Yet Michael Jackson has been splattered onto the media airwaves non-stop since his death.
Why should Michael Jackson's death be covered so much more, then that of Farrah Fawcett or any other human being for that matter? Farrah Fawcett's tragic death is just as tragic as Michael Jackson's was and just as sad. There is no joy in death, only sorrow and I feel for the Jackson family and friends, but I also feel sorrow and grief for the family and friends of Farrah Fawcett.
Michael Jackson's unfortunate death was sudden and yes very sad, but here's a lady who we knew as an angel from Charle's Angels and a woman who was an amazing actress and a very talented woman and a mother and had a lot to give to this world, yet sadly she's not as important as Michael Jackson happens to be or not as interesting cause her tribute should have been the same as Michael Jackson's was, but unfortunately in this world it seems we are still judged even in death on how popular and controversial we were in life.
