The author captures perfectly my own emotions when a "public figure" passes and is heralded by the media while the ones who truly make this earth work - as are often found in the obituaries of the local papers - pass almost unnoticed except by those who loved and/or respected them. All the compassion and energy for "things" that won't improve individual lives is I must confess, lost on me.
