And it happens again...

Another Airbus crashed this Tuesday morning in the Comoros Islands... 153 people were in the plane and amazingly a 5-year-old kid survived the accident. As for other survivors I don't know. They already found a bunch of debris and some bodies along the coast. Exactly a month after the terrible crash of the AF 447 flight, which left from Rio de Janeiro with Paris as its final destination and, in the middle of the Atlantic, disappeared, killing all the 228 people aboard.

Most (if not all) of these people were not celebrities. They were normal people either going on vacation, or on a study abroad trip, or whatever reason. They all left their families behind. :( I can see how people are so devastated with Michael Jackson's death, but at the same time, he was ONE person. He wasn't 228. Nor 153.

Honestly, the fact that 2 planes crashed in a month's period is much more reason for me to be sad. Michael's family will still earn money with royalties, especially now that he passed away -- everyone will buy his stuff.

What about the victims of those plane crashes? Maybe some kind of settlement that will last them for a couple of years, to help cover for funeral expenses and for them to get by for a while...

For those big fans of Michael, it's not that I don't like him. I actually do! I guess it's just the way I see things...

Peace for the families of those 381 people that left them behind.
