Twitter is the bearer of bad news

| life | music | navy |

This is the second time that I have found out about a tragic event due to twitter.

First it was last week I was just doing my thing and I found out about the tragic Red Line Crash in Washington DC that killed 9 people. I was so worried because I have developed a lot of strong friendships in Maryland and it would be devastating if someone I knew was on that train.

Then today I was doing my thing again and CCNBreakingNews came out with a tweet about Michael Jackson being sent to the hospital for cradiac arrest. Then everyone started talking about it, and before I knew it he was gone.

I was never a DIEHARD MJ fan, but I did like his music. I have just completed listening to his Number Ones Album. He will be missed, he has not made much great music in a long time. But I still appreciate what he has done for music.

“you are not alone, I am here with you.”

I will always remember at boot camp, I did not hear music for weeks and weeks on end and I began to go crazy. The first song I heard was Michael Jackson, Billy Jean @ the barber shop in Great Lakes.
