Stephen Gately Dies

Postby Remus » Sun Oct 11, 2009 12:22 pm

Anyone else here who was shocked at the news of his death this morning? Such a young age as well at just 33, so tragic. Cause of death is currently unknown though.

Thousands of people under 20 die every year. 33 is not that young. Recently an 8 year old girl died of liver cancer from the news. I'm not saying it's a shame that this person has died, but he has lived a much longer and prosperous life than a lot of people.

It is a shock for anyone to die, you cannot place a value on human life.
I must find a truth that is true for me . . . the idea for which I can live or die.

I agree, whether the person is 10 or 100, it's still comes as massive shock.

But why does this person deserve idolization above countless others who died on the same day?

This has to be the end of Boyzone now because Stephen can't be replaced

Being famous should not mean you are idolized when you die. The only time it is appropriate if someone actually contributed something that wasn't selfish to the world. Such as mother teresa.

I thought they had established that he choked and drowned on his own vomit after a big night out drinking but I could be wrong-that's the last I heard though.
