Today the world has lost two of it’s Pop Icons.
- Farrah Fawcett, who fought the valiant fight, succumbed to Anal Cancer at the age of 62.
- Michael Jackson, the “King of Pop”, passed suddenly of a cardiac arrest at the young age of 50.
The loss of these talented souls will touch the lives of many. Already, fans of Michael’s are flocked outside the hospital he was taken to. A special expose can be found on almost every network about one or the other. I do not think this is necessarily a bad thing, it is good for us to celebrate the lives and point out the special things that made these poeple so important to so many.
What does bother me, however, is that these two deaths have been allowed (by the mainstream media) to blot out the deaths of at least 19 (according to the AP) people struggling for Equal Rights Democracy in Iran. We cannot forget these people and the countless others that have been injured…and those that are still struggling.
This is a very important time in the World. It is a time of Change, a time of Awakening, a time of Struggle & Unrest.
As much as the deaths of these larger-than-life personalities may stir our emotions, I urge you to listen to the cries of those in Iran. Those who cry for Neda, and the others who have perished, need you to See. They need your support, they need to not be forgotten.
This Saturday Night June 27th (7pm Pacific Time/10pm Eastern Time). The Sacred Mists Merry Mists Inn (chatroom) will be welcoming me, as Facilitator of the Sacred Mists Political Pagans Board. I plan on speaking about the situation in Iran, and hope to inspire those in attendance to do what they can to help Change the World. If you are a member of Sacred Mists…I hope to see you there.
