There is a quote that I use all the time “Childhood is the only true home everyone has and a person can never go back to it.” Memories of the past are often punctuated by family, friends and school. We think less of the soundtracks of our lives: the TV shows and the music that blared in the background of our homes and cars.
This past week Farrah Fawcett lost her battle with cancer and Michael Jackson died of a heart attack. Both were highly visible celebrities in my childhood Ms. Fawcett known for her blond tresses, sparkling smile and her one season on Charlie’s Angels. Michael Jackson had been in prominent figure in the music business from when he was a little boy singing with his brothers to his solo career. Both made their mark in their respective industries, and helped forge a path for others to follow. We may disagree with some of their personal choices; however I think we can all agree that in the end none of that matter. Farrah Fawcett will always be thought of as model who worked hard to be recognized as an actress. And Michael Jackson music will live on in iPods everywhere.
