When Jackie Kennedy died, I really felt sad as though she was part of my family.

    but there was one that I felt really really bad about. I really admired him and had alot of hope he would make alot of change in this world. He was also an amazing actor. Its the most upset I ever got about someone I never met dying.

    Is this the spot where I'm supposed to say, "Gandhi?" Ha.

    Actually, good question. Funny how the mind goes in to hyper drive and you click back through all the public figures you have personally respected. And the odd thing is that, I can't come up with someone! I may have to revisit.

    Princess Dianna. Few people know me. Even fewer know what drives me. Princess Dianna made me feel courageous. She was inspirational. Beautiful yet humble, intelligent and compassionate. Her charities were also my charities. Seeing her civic work inspired me to be a volunteer in many different facets of my life. When she died, being chased by lesser individuals who had accomplished little for the world and would go on to accomplish little for the world... it was an offense to me. I never bought rag mags and never will but moreover, I refuse to indulge paparazzi in anyway by purchasing idiotic drivel with the fruit of their stalking labor plastered in the most unglorious and unflattering manner.

    No; I felt sorrow for their family/friends and if they were an honorable person, I would just feel another good person passed away.

    Jean Shepherd.
    I grew up listening to him on the radio with my mother and her parents. We read all his books too.
    Even now I and my family make it a point to watch A Christmas Story every year.

    JFK Jr. because I had seen him on tv since he was so little at his father's funeral. And the fact that his wife and her sister were killed in the same crash made it that much more tragic.

    I was at his last concert in Alpine Valley. We heard about the crash on our way home on the radio and we were all stunned.
