On facebook this morning, there is an outpouring of sadness and loss over the death of Whitney Houston. I don't understand how people can throw out so much emotion for someone they never met, but every day small children are dying of leukemia and cancer and no one seems to bat an eyelash.
Children that didn't choose a behavior that may ultimately lead to their death.
For everyone that is "sad" about the death of Whitney Houston, I suggest you go visit a 5-year-old battling a deadly cancer and look their parents in the eye. Then tell me who you really feel "sorry" for.
I'm a firm believer that we create our own set of circumstances. Now, some may be out of our control, such as weather, major world events, etc. But if I go out, get wasted, get in my car, then wrap it around a telephone pole and die, don't you dare waste a single tear on me because I was an idiot. If you should feel compelled to cry, go visit the Children's Hospital in Indy and that should get your emotions back in track and in a proper prospective.
