The lives of Amy Winehouse, Whitney Houston, and Michael Jackson weren’t worth any more or any less than the lives of a soldier. All of them are people, and soldiers are people as well, so it’s ridiculous to say that one group has a more valuable life than the other. If you think that celebrities are more important, or if you think that the celebrities’ lives were worthless and that only soldiers’ lives matter, then you are no better than people like Hitler who valued one type of human being above others. They’re all just humans. Instead of bitching about how people should be focusing more on the deaths of one group vs another, you should just be mourning for everyone who died instead of trying to create some morbid hierarchy. The death of a solider, a celebrity, one of your parents, or a random hobo on the street are all equally tragic because all of those people are just humans and their lives should be valued equally. Sure, it’s totally normal and understandable for you to mourn more for someone you know personally, but it really bothers me when people go so far to say that someone’s death doesn’t matter because “well look at this person who died! They’re more important!” Stop.
