Why Am I So Sad?

I'm sure most of you have heard by now that Heath Ledger has passed away today. The thing that has taken me by surprise is that I am really sad about it. I can't help but wonder why I'm so emotional about the death of someone I don't know. I realize however, that he was someone's son, friend, and father. Also, can I possibly be feeling like this because he was just months younger than me? People really close to me might chuckle because they know how sentimental I am. I tear up when I watch historical movies, SPCA specials, or Hallmark commercials I've seen tons of times.
Sometimes I let what others think of me bother me but this is one quality I love about myself. I do admit that sometimes I get emotional over trivial things, but I can't help it. The world needs softies like me to keep the world balanced. So I take this moment to shed some tears for Heath Ledger, his family, and all others affected by the death of a close one. A life ended too soon.

Here's that Hallmark commercial.

Hmmm. The news was shooking to me too. How could that happen to someone so young. Someone younger than me.
Hallmark gets to me too. My favorite one is the student that goes to visit her teacher after so many years and the teacher stills remembers her.
