Legends come and go but their contributions to life and culture remain as a testimony of their impact on our lives. We must remember they were people first and entertainers second. Like all of us they are very human. Celebrity is fleeting and people pass away, its a fact of life.
There are people who are legends who are not famous but do amazing things in our communities. Many people make contributions to our society but often times go unheralded. All of us can be human legends if we are willing to do something amazing.
Always honor the people who blazed a trail for you to enjoy the life you have today. The last couple of days some older people who are well known have passed away who made a impact on the world. It’s been nice that they have received the recognition for their life’s work.
It saddens me to see legends in any field pass on, it’s a part of life, I know. When they do leave us its important the younger generation know who they are and what they did to inspire people of today who are following in their footsteps.
For every Jimmy Fallon there was a Jack Paar and Johnny Carson. For every Maroon 5 there was The Beatles. For every Eddie Murphy there was a Richard Pryor.
Remember those generations before. Let their work never be forgotten.
