one dies millions cry millions die no one cries

This just magnifies our current societies misplaced priorities.

Whitney had a good voice, but other than that, in the great scheme of things, she was a nobody.

It breaks my heart that in this day of 'advanced' technology, so-called 'enlightenment' and 'humanistic' ideals, that ANY child is starving, lacking medical care, and are targets of control freaks.

The majority living in 'first world' societies (i hate that term), in my opinion, gets way too comfortable in luxury cars, (any car is a luxury), luxury homes,(indoor plumbing. running water, electricity=luxury) and our consumerist lifestyle to give a 'rats patootie' about whats going on outside their comfort zones. The phrase "let them eat cake' comes to mind, and as long as the gravy train (bread and circuses, ie free entertainment and other mental distractions) continues, the mantra will be "Someone should really help those people! Pass the biscuits please."

Shameful, really.

I couldn't agree more OP! The ring on her finger could feed those people in that picture for the rest of their lives...This IS what IS wrong with the world. Some might argue that she brought joy to those who embraced her talents and one might argue that we will never discover the talents of the 'faceless'. We don't see these needy people enough because it is uncomfortable and they can't afford the space on the airwaves!!!

We have a long way to go!
