The 11 Best Songs By School of Seven Bells

Today a friend told me about her good friend’s brother who died of a heart attack.  He was only 43.  I could tell by the timber in her voice that she was broken up.  She had grown up with the family and this hit her personally.  A few minutes later, a friend emails me about Andrew Brietbart who had died.  Turns out…it was the same person.  There’s no question that Andrew was a polarizing figure.  But as a public figure in death, there seem to be different rules.  Earlier that morning, I felt bad for my friend who had lost someone.  He was a brother, a father, a son, and a friend.  The loss was tragic.  But once my friend posted it on Facebook, the gloves of sympathy came off and the vitriol drenched the Facebook walls.  People who didn’t know the man but just didn’t like his political stance felt they had the right to celebrate his death with disrespect and filth that they would never in thousands years say about someone they knew.  And they said this to someone who did know him and was positively affected by his life. I don’t know why people feel they have the right to say such hateful things about someone who has no power to defend themselves just because they have a soap box to say it.  It’s like people forget that the internet is written in ink.  It’s not always what you say that matters…but sometimes what your don’t say.
