Saints and Icons

10 years ago, we lost Princess Di and Mother Teresa. The editorial labove talks about how our reactions 10 years later show our skewed priorities. I'd like to point out that at least Diana went to Africa to rally support for poor people and amputees from left over land mines. She could've just hung out in the castle and partied. So she is being memorialized by those who love her- her children and celebrities (her peers). At least she made a postitve contribution to life that had nothing to do with fashion.

And I'd like to point out that Mother Teresa is being memorialized by her friends- the poor. The poor just don't get as much air time and media play.
