Somewhere along the line, due in no small measure to the Internet and social networking, people got the mistaken notion that one shouldn't discuss a topic if one isn't on the "right side" of it. In this case, my comments on where I was when former Princess Diana's untimely but probably planned death occured in 1997.
In a sea of "I was so sad" replies, mine naturally stood out among a select few who were basically unaffected.
The exact question on this particular message board read as follows:
Today marks the 15th anniversary of Princess Diana's death.
Where were you when you found out she had been killed in the now infamous car crash?
My initial reply is below:
Dealing with my mother's death and not caring about this screwed up woman.
Here are some replies to my comment:
"Wow if you don't have anything nice to say then just move on! So many ugly, hateful people anymore!"
