Advice: Marilyn edition, “The few remaining earthbound stars”


I am involved in a freedom ride protesting the loss of the minority rights belonging to the few remaining earthbound stars. All we demanded was our right to twinkle.

(Telegram from Marilyn Monroe declining a party invitation from Bobby and Ethel Kennedy. June 13, 1962.)

You got to fight for your right to twinkle. It is difficult and discouraging and at times seems insurmountable, but in the end, you are raised up to the sky to shine forever. Please try to help each other out and let’s none of us lose heart.

    “Goodbye Norma Jean
    Though I never knew you at all
    You had the grace to hold yourself
    While those around you crawled”

    I couldn’t see that image without thinking of that song!

    Thank you…having the courage to twinkle IS most important!
