In My Lifetime...

I decided today that I needed to start recording the things that future generations will read about so that they know that I was alive at that time.

Although these current events this week aren't necessarily earth shaking and everyone has mixed feelings about how they feel because of the character of one, All celebrities that died this week have been legends in their own right.

Ed McMahon gave millions away for Publishers Clearinghouse. I remember seeing him on TV all the time with his jovial smile and wishing he would come and give me that money! I also remember him as a host on Star Search, co-host in telethons as well as TV's Bloopers and Practical Jokes. He passed at age 86.

Farrah Faucett was a female icon since being one of Charlie's Angels on a hit TV series and sadly she lost her 3 year battle today with cancer at age 62. I remember all the rage in 4th grade was to have the Farrah Faucett feather hair do. I have pictures to prove it!

Michael Jackson, The King of Pop music, so they call him, also passed away today of Cardiac Arrest. I grew up listening to his music and watching his dancing. STill my favorite of his music above all is from the Jackson 5. ABC and Ben were in my favorites of that era. The ones I remember most is of course Thriller, Black and White, Bad and also the song we had to sing in elementary which I don't know what it is called but has the chorus "make this a better place. For you and for me and the entire human race.."
Michael was only 50 when he passed away today.

I am glad that I am going to start chronicling the things that take place while I am alive. I know that I have loved to hear my family talk about events that took place when they were younger and I want to have that for my generations as well.
