The day Diana died

Like September 11 after it years later or the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster or the death of John Garang de Mabior, I still remember vividly where I was and what I was doing when the news came filtering in that Diana, Princess of Wales died.

Just from the news coverage marking ten years after her death, you could feel it that her memory is as strong as ever. In my school days, we use to have a beautiful young lady called Diana too, and naturally, became to be known as Princess.

Following her humanitaian work and visits to charities, I had this the vaguest of dreams to see her visiting our little corner.

Diana maybe the last voice of change in an establishment that has lost touch with its people. The British monarchy is on its way out. It would have been fun what it would be like if she had been alive today, although devorced from the future king.

Well, I leave the conspiracy theories about her death alone.

Indeed a peoples princess. The organizers of this event wanted to remember the Princess before God. I wonder if the time will come when Garang will be remember in another light. Like the songs he liked and so on...

hey Black Kush, how are you doing?

When I think of her death I think of her sons, they were small kids when she died, they lost their closest thing - their mother. It must be really painful for them when 'strangers' talk about her, especially when its negative talk.

My memories of that day, I remember where I was and how I heard the news, unfortunately my first thought was 'School is definitely cancelled tomorrow!!', it wasnt.
