Death Seems to Happen in Threes

I have heard from multiple people that 'people always tend to die in threes' and after yesterday, I definitely believe it. I mean who could know that Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson would die on the same day? More bizarre yet, Farrah, Michael, and Ed McMahon within a whopping two days?

It was a very sad day yesterday. I woke up and saw the headlines on AOL and Yahoo that Farrah had lost her battle with cancer and had passed away. I feel bad now for not having kept up with the story when it was happening. Watching the specials, it appeared that she died surrounded by the ones she loved and peacefully, without pain. That's all anyone can ask for having gone through the struggle she did.

Michael was more of a surprise. Actually, a pure shock to be honest. I keep thinking about it and I can't wrap my mind around it. We watched the breaking news bulletin that couldn't get anything right-First he was fine and in the hospital, then he was dead, and after that he was in a coma, and then finally after so many contradicting stories, they acknowledged that he had in fact died of heart failure. The thing about this story is your not sure what's true and what's not-We don't know exactly what he died from because of so many stories so I guess time will tell.

And Ed. That wasn't too much of a shock since he was 86, but it was still a sad happening. Even though I didn't know much about Ed McMahon, I knew that he was somewhat of a legend and even though he has passed away, the good he brought to people's lives will live on.

So people die in threes and in the past two days, we have lost three amazing icons and even more three amazing people. Their memories will continue on because of the wonderful impact they had on society.

Rest In Peace You All.

Love and Energies.

It does seem like death does come in threes, but does birth come in threes but we just don't hear about it? hmmm
