Things aren’t always as they seem

When Carrie Fisher died, people were speculating it was her heart, or maybe she had a stroke, or some other medical reason for her sudden death.

When Erin Moran passed away, people assumed it was drugs because of her past and some issued she had.

It turns out it was just the opposite.  Erin Moran died from cancer and some people had to eat their unkind words.  She suffered in silence, and was judged on her past.  Carrie Fisher, according to her autopsy results released this week, died with cocaine, methadone, ethanol and opiates in her system.  But, she was Princess Leah, that didn’t cause her death, it was sleep apnea.

Social media has made it way too easy for people to be judgmental, to comment on how others live their lives, and to make any assumptions we want whether they are based in fact or just a rumor.  People can change.  Sometimes it’s easy to judge others or make assumptions….but I think we should all work a little harder at not doing that.  Wouldn’t we all be a little happier if we focused on our own lives and not make assumptions about others.  After all, you can’t judge a book by it’s cover.  OK, I have to say it….can’t we all just get along!!  Oh yeah…let’s not forget the golden rule….do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
