I must say, as much as it seems a controversial view I must agree with Gforce on this one... It seems to shock a lot of people that I'm not really bothered by her death - Im sure she was a nice woman, and she did do a lot of good too I'm sure, but blimey... Enough already! How many years is it going to go on for!
There's practically no talk about other very deserving people - Mother Teresa for example yet all we keep seeing in the papers and on the telly is utter drivel, nonsense and "facts" that are simply totally uninteresting and pointless about Diana! It's not as if she was even born a Princess of the nation - She just happened to marry Charles!
Can't we get back to embarrassing politicians please Mr Media?
So very true. More to the point, there are sooooo many people out there who do great things for the community and people around them, for little or no reward - heck there are thousands of you Special Constables, last I heard you did it for free! I know people who live on little income, struggle to survive, yet are better qualified than many people in well paid jobs. Are they being lazy, claiming the dole? No, they are working for charities or other voluntary groups, doing the thankless tasks that we all forget about. If they didn't do them the NHS would be over-run, the country would have so many more problems and a need to spend more money, but these groups take on the UK's problems and issues and try to make it better, for little or no reward.
They are heros. Diana was a lovely person 9or so we are led to believe) who did some good and helped charities to get recognition, but at the end of the day she went home to the most lavish environments, and was waited on hand and foot. She wanted for nothing. Sure she could have just spent her time opening museums and hospitals and pretending to do something, but she chose to try harder, but did she do all she could? Did she 'eck. She had the Worlds admiration apparantly, and as she is tlked about to this day with such love surely she could have put more in. Or got others to do it?
Not knocking her as such, just think it's done now, finished. Let's find the real heros to worshio. Oh yeah, I forgot, they don't seek recognition or thanks, they just want a roof over their heads and a hot meal. Now thats dedication.
Sorry guys, emotive subject!
