At the passing of this legend of the silver screen and former US Ambassador to two nations, we should pause to honor her. She wasn’t a celebrity as we know them today: Naked, Drugged, Profane, Abused, Abusive, in Jail, or in Rehab. This was a woman of class and distinction. The nation should recognize her for her service.
Shirley Temple was born on 28 April 1928. It is too late for the President to order flags at half-staff—if he hasn’t thought to by now, it won’t happen. This petition is to get him to do SOMETHING.
I propose 28 April 2014 be declared “Shirley Temple Black Day”. Join me in this please.
