Christina Green should be, and IS, an inspiration for life. She did more with her short 9 years than many of us do in 10 times that much time on earth. I find myself touched by this little angel that I never met, and owe her a debt of gratitude for what she has shown me through her example.
She has reminded me that one can never take a single day for granted.
She inspires me do set down emotional baggage that I have been carrying for far too long. To Jimmy, principal investor of Gunslinger Records who lost his life in the World Trade Center on Christina’s birthday, I wish you a peaceful farewell. Good luck to Ritchie and Drew; safe travels to wherever your journeys take you. It was a great ride, but now it’s time for me to move forward.
We must never forget the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, but those of us still on this planet can consider ourselves fortunate to carry on, and remember that even in despair there is hope and renewal. The same holds true for the new humans who will come after her, and who will replace us when we are gone.
Thank you, Christina. Although I did not know you, and only learned of you through the heartbreaking circumstances surrounding your departure, I can honestly say that today there is at least one more person who is better off for having known of you. Rest in Peace.
I recently performed as a DJ in Arizona for a very nice couple who had a celebrity guest at their wedding. He was a childhood friend who achieved fame and fortune in the music and television entertainment industries, and was attending their wedding as a guest and groomsman in their bridal party.
Keep in mind that he was not there with an agenda other than being a friend. He was not promoting a new book or movie or reality tv show, and had no particular desire to be recognized. I had been prepared to play any number of his hit songs, either from the original group he performed with or any of his subsequent hits as a solo artist. However, after planning the evening with the bride and groom, they made it clear that I was not to do so even if requested, and I was happy to honor their wishes. They simply wanted their friend to be there and be comfortable, and not singled out with the white hot spotlight. I happen to agree, as I think the focus of any wedding celebration is the bride and groom.
Then the trouble began. During the course of the evening, one of their other guests noticed the man in question and made the connection. She then approached me with her bright idea. “Here’s what I want you to do,” she said. “You need to announce to everyone that there is a celebrity here, and then point him out and play one of his songs dedicated to the bride and groom.” I explained to her that I was very aware of the circumstance, and attempted to let her know why that would not be appropriate. “Oh, no way,” she drunkenly and stubbornly insisted. “If you don’t do what I say then I will go to my friend the groom and have him make you.” Before I could do anything about it, she proceeded to accost the newly married couple with her demand and continued to harass them until it became obvious to them that she would not relent without causing a scene. She was convinced that she knew their desires better than they did. The groom reluctantly asked me to go ahead and placate his drunken friend and actually apologized to me for the confusion and embarassment that she had caused. He felt that it was the only way she would let them enjoy the rest of the evening in relative peace, so in essence she ended up forcing her way on the couple and temporarily controlling the agenda. Their celebrity friend smiled and begrudgingly went along, but clearly felt as I did: that this was the Bride and Groom’s special day and not his.
My plea is simple. The next wedding you are invited to attend, please remember that the married couple is the focus and honor of the event. Although you may be a veritable font of great concepts for the success of their event, chances are unless you were involved in the planning phase that your input may not be needed. Did this woman truly believe that she was the only one who saw the celebrity in their midst, and that she was inspired with a brilliant idea no one else had considered? Did she really have the audacity to think that the couple didn’t know of their friend’s success, despite the fact that they grew up together and that he was a member of their bridal party? Perhaps the casual partygoing friend was unaware or oblivious, however the fact remains that she was out of line by insisting on having her way.
A Bride and Groom should be supported on their wedding day and have their particular vision of happiness supported, especially on the first day of their new life together. Please allow them the respect that they deserve.
It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions even though they shared their heat. After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth. Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. This way they learned to live with the little wounds that were caused by the close relationship with their companion, but the most important part of it was the warmth that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.
Moral of the story: The best relationships are not based on striving for perfection, but accepting the faults of others close to you.
