*What with tomorrow being Thanksgiving, I feel it’s timely, and touching, to share this video with you. Maybe you can watch as you travel to work by bus or train; or maybe as you ride to work in the carpool. What are you doing for lunch? Maybe watch it on your tablet as you sit for a while to eat your sandwich or drink your Latte.
I’m not gonna lie. I just stumbled upon this video. And please don’t look at this as a “downer” but it shows so many people of note, celebrities, who have died from cancer. I was so moved by it as I watched because, well…
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving.
And as families of all sorts come together, chances are there will be a moment when someone notices who is not there.
On this video, not only will you see people, celebrities, you didn’t even realize had died; but there are people that you didn’t realize had died from cancer.
Another thing: Many of the celebrities shown in this video – all in photos from their “glory days” – died a long time ago…
When the word “cancer” was spoken so rarely.
Now just be warned, not every celebrity who died from cancer is on the list. (Clearing my throat, Minnie Ripperton), but we’d be here all day so…
But you will see that there are so many who ARE on the video that an honorable head nod should go to the person who spent time putting it together (and with music no less!).
Cheers — whoever you are.
I hope you are as moved as I was, as you take time out to watch, and listen.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family from EURThisNthat.
