Two Icons In One Day

It was a day of great sorrow and grief when the stars, two great icons in music and movies stop illuminating. They both died of a dreaded illness that cut short of their life, mutilated the peak of their career, and even shattered the hearts of many. Michael Jackson (1958-2009) the "King of Pop" died of cardiac arrest while Farrah Fawcett (1947 - 2009) one of the original member of "Charlie's Angels" succumbed to anal cancer.

Michael Jackson should not be blamed for the scandals and controversies he took headlines most especially with children because he himself was a victim as young kid. Young Michael Jackson was molested by his father and never fully enjoyed his youth because he already seriously working at a young age. Instead, we should remember and let us be reminded by the legacy he left us. His music, pioneering dance styles, his charities and ideals must serve as an inspiration to many. On the other hand, Farrah Fawcett should be commended for her exemplary life. She showed extreme strength and endurance despite the unbearable sufferings, she is losing ground with her battle against cancer yet she is a valiant warrior. A symbol for women and a woman of austerity behind the glamour of limelight.

The world is weeping over the loss of these two icons in just one day because they will surely miss them but by reliving their music, dance, movies and charities they will always be alive in our hearts.
