6 things you think would be great about being a rock star (or just famous in general)
1. Lots of money. I know that is greedy, but I would just like to know what its like. I would do good charitable things with it, honest.
2. World travel, I haven't been lucky enough to see a lot of the world yet, I am sure as a rock star I would get to see it all.
6. Ok, seriously I would like to know what it is like to have enough money to do all those things. I would also like to have enough money to be able to help people that really needed it. We had a few sad events in Michigan the past few days. One a car with 5 young people in it decided to try and outrun a train and didn't make it. All 5 are dead. In another area, a family was camping. The Dad got up early and was cold, his family was sleeping so he went to their car to warm up. He fell asleep and hit the gear, running over the tent. His wife and 1 year old daughter are ok, but the 5 year old son is critical. He is a homeless Irag vet and they were living in the tent. Now they are going to take the children away until he can provide a home for them. Now I wish I had the money I earned from being a rock star to buy that family a home and get that child the best medical care available. I wish I could pay for the funerals of those 5 families and get them the help they needed. It wouldn't change anything but it might give them less to worry about.
I am sorry to end on a sad note, but I can't get these stories off my mind and I thought they could use some extra prayers from the blogasphere.
