Honorable Discharge...

5 minute Stream of Consciousness...

It’s not a dishonorable discharge unless we make it one.

I haven’t turned on the news yet to see what exactly happened. Oh Whitney what did you do? I don’t wanna know. I didn’t get on Facebook or Twitter last night. But it will come out whether I want to hear it or not. Her death will be speculated to shame. Another ‘gone to soon’ to add to the list. Forgive me for who I’m forgettin’, this is a 5 minute brain dump fresh off of the press of sadness.

  • Whitney Houston
  • Luther Vandross
  • James Brown
  • Nick Ashford
  • Gerald Levert
  • Michael Jackson
  • Etta James
  • Amy Winehouse
  • Aliyah
  • Tupac
  • Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez

Do/will you remember what the media said or do/will you remember why you loved them?

Here’s the thing…let us remember them as they were in their prime, not who they died being.



This 5 minute Stream of Consciousness was inspired by the death of Whitney Houston 2/11/2012
