Of course, this still doesn't mean that they can complete the syllogism
from the generalization to the specific and live with the thought and
implications of their own death.
: Look at her see had every thing from fame to riches.
This sentence no grammar.
Ignoring your incapacity to form a coherent sentence, however, the
space of attributes not covered by "fame to riches" covers a rather
large ground, such as those to which Nik alluded: grinding poverty and
the sure knowledge that you will never escape it, destitute childhood,
childhood abuse, debilitating physical illnesses, parasitic
infestations, crippling labor, accidental mutilation by stray
ordinance, witnessing the mass murder of your friends and relatives,
and other things that form the reality of life for the bulk of this
: Also the
: fact that she was a giving person to all that have know her.
Since I've already beaten on you about the grammar:
Most people are giving towards those who know them.
The only thing in any way unique about Princess Diana is that she had
the unique experience of being used as a brood mare or incubator by the
parasitic British royal family, and then discarded.
The only thing morally special about her was that she had the wit to
recognise this gave her some sort of bizarre pseudo-importance in the
eyes of the less intelligent, and that she actually made some vague
efforts to use this dubious status to convince people to do things
which would benefit the general world population, in terms of relieving
them of some of those non-"fame to riches" experiences I mentioned
above. Land mines, for instance. I think being opposed to
indiscriminate use of land mines is generally a good thing.
To sum up, despite her overprivileged upbringing, she managed to
eventually raise herself roughly to the moral caliber of the average
human being. The only surprising or thing about this is that it is so
rare among "celebrities."
