Keep it in perspective...

I read this today on a friend's (a female F15e pilot's) Facebook page and I thought....YEAH you are totally right.

"I cant believe the all news coverage being given to a 20-something addict actress Lindsey Lohan. Here are a few 20 year-olds worth knowing about: Justin Allen23, Brett Linley 29, Matt Weikert 29, Justus Bartett 27, Dave Santos 21, Chase Stanley 21, Jesse Reed 26, Matthew King 23, Christopher Goeke 23 & Sheldon Tate 27. These 20-somethings gave their lives for you this week."

I'll be honest, I love a good celebrity sh!tstorm just as much as the next girl...probably more to be completely honest...but this much attention shouldn't be paid to Ms. Lilo.

So true! I can't stand all this press for Lilo, and it bothers me that they are letting her get off easy because shes a "celeb". Sorry for the rant!

I think we all need to be reminded there are still wars being fought. Way too much time and attention get paid to celebs and their problems. Thanks for sharing.

I'm with you! I had that as my status too along with probably 10 other Millies I'm friends with on FB.

Amen, girl! I am so sick of hearing about what an idiot she is when young men and women are losing their lives daily fighting in these wars. This especially hits home for us with recent events!
