The Brutal World of Twitter Remembers Andrew Breitbart

I first learned of the death of Andrew Breitbart on Twitter. Once his death was confirmed the tweets started flowing. Some were simple RIPs, but some took issue with him and were not very kind. Our life is our testimony. We will all be remembered by what we said and what we did. Both are things we can control. Often those who agree with us will remember us fondly, and those that don’t will not wax poetically regarding our death. One of the tweets I read linked to the story I have linked to, and it talks about Brietbart’s response to the death Of Ted Kennedy. It was unkind. Some will say well maybe it was true, but did it need to be said the day he died? Sadly, today Brietbart in some quarters is receiving the same fate he readly meted out to others, and that is sad. Welcome to the Twitter world, it’s quick, but it can be so unkind.

    Life is inherently unkind. It takes a lot work and effort to take the edge out of it. Good people will be remembered for their goodness, bad for the bad(ness).We all get what we give. I’m sure he was good to his family, his friends, and those he cared for, and they will miss him. The rest, well…does it really matter? He’s dead. We’ll all be where he is now, so make the most of it.
