Not that you have to feel bad.
Just don't say anything if you don't have anything good to say.
Didn't your mothers teach you that?
"Just don't say anything" doesn't sound like a good strategy.
I was thinking I brought in some "heart", some "respect"
on the other hand, can't you expect people at ATS to be critical?
As others here mentioned already (I included it as well):
why should this death be worth mentioning more than the death of children who did die that some day?
why should we celebrate some person who entertained celebs?
Mind you, I had the same feeling when Jobs died and the world felt the need to try to turn him into a saint.
Contrary to you a lot of readers enjoyed my critical essays I published in some leading newspaper (in Dutch. Too bad, otherwise I would share)
Why would we respect a culture that tends to turn captains of industry into heroes?
My mother not only learned me to be respectful, she also showed me how to be critical
