Imagine living your entire married life in a fishbowl, for all of the world to see and scrutinize.
Imagine the constant following of the media…not only for your spouse, who is a public figure, but for you and your underaged children.
Imagine early one Sunday morning not only losing your husband and your child, but for it to be broadcasted on every channel ALL day.
Imagine your family and close friends gaining the knowledge of the loss through social media or television.
Imagine having to mourn the loss of your beloved child and husband under the watchful eyes of the world!!!
Wait now imagine that your last name is Altobelli… Chester… Mauser… Zobayan… and early this same Sunday morning you also suffered a loss of a mother, father, daughter, sister…
Imagine your loved ones are Refferred to as … “And eight other passengers, died”.
Imagine your family finding out on social media as well or by the smut reporting of none other than the calloused and insensitive reporting of TMZ.
I can’t begin to imagine any of this and I pray to never have to walk in these shoes. But if God does decide for something similar to be my fate, I would hope that people would take at least a few moments to consider me and my family before speaking out of their ignorance.
I pray for all families affected by this tragedy. I pray for the friends and loved ones as well.
I ask that before the onlookers and so called fans weigh in with their opinions and statements that they would take a moment to imagine… imagine it were you and yours.
