Farewell to a beautiful soul.......

I knew it was coming, but it still didn't make me any less sad that Farrah Fawcett passed away yesterday morning. In the 70's, she was so beautiful, she took my breath away. I wanted my hair to look just like hers, and for a time, it did. Then she kind of faded from the limelight and you didn't hear too terribly much about her.... then last week or so, I watched her controversial documentary on her battle with cancer, and I admired her beautiful spirit. Young women have truly lost a great, great person, notice I didn't say a great beauty, because it was her spirit that we noticed lately.
I am shocked about the death of Michael Jackson, but I think that the media is doing Farrah a disservice but downplaying her and the beautiful spirit she had and over playing on Michael Jackson's passing. I am sorry for his family's loss and yes he contributed a great deal to music, but he also was a pedophile. Sorry, that's just how it is. And I don't think he deserves any lauding and the world lifting him up like he was some kind of hero.
That's just my opinion, I hope no one gets mad at me for expressing it.

I agree with you, Farrah just seemed tossed to the curve after M.J.'s death
