An Open Plea to the Universe:
2016 is over.
Whatever thrill you got in making it such a terrible year, let that be an end to it.
In other words:
STOP MAKING SO MANY CELEBRITIES DIE!
Movie stars and rock stars, people whose lives gave nothing but joy to so many millions.
These are people the universe should be protecting, not taking away.
So, whatever power runs this universe,
(Be you a god or a programmer running this Matrix-like simulation, or anything in between)
I humbly ask that you stop being so cruel to us.
Should you have a deep-seated urge to cause such devastation to a group this year, too,
Please pick a group no one will miss.
There are people in this world who spread nothing but hate and cruelty;
Start making them drop dead rather than people who spread love and happiness.
