As someone who comes from a military/cop family, this is something that is always on my mind.

Sean, they are not ignored, but their lives are remembered where they made their mark. At best, they get a mention on the national news a few times, like the Dallas attack that claimed five officers last July. Prior to their deaths, they made their mark within the community and that is where they will be remembered. Likewise, when a member of the military dies in action, they will be remembered within the communities they lived.

The celebrities are remembered in the community where they made their mark. The difference is they made their mark upon the world instead of a home town or county, of even state.

We have two days a year to remember the men and women that served in law enforcement and the military. The Peace Officers Memorial Day is May 15, just a few weeks before Memorial Day for our military. On top of that, we have Veterans Day to honor those who served while they are still alive. And don't think that we don't remember those that have passed on, either.

The end of the year is bittersweet as we think about those we lost during the year. As the internet is global, the focus is on those who passed that we, as a global community, have a common knowledge of.

This year, we lost our youngest brother. He was a veteran and local celebrity in eastern Ohio. He chose to be a big fish in a little pond. He had a fairly large fan base considering he was only a bar DJ. I didn't complain that total strangers aren't remembering him at the end of the year, but when I mentioned on a celebrity post that he's the one I'd miss the most, the outpouring of compassion was strong within the community of imgflip.

I considered making a post for community members to post a meme of the ones they lost this past year. Many won't due to them preferring their anonymity that imgflip has. I may still do that and see what happens.

Complaining about people being ignored in death does little or nothing for those that are gone. At least posting a remembrance, no matter how fleeting it may be, is a positive way to remember those no longer here.

All valid points, I respect your opinion but I will continue to stand behind mine, my condolences on the loss of your brother. I suffered multiple family member losses this year, I know how hard it is, Happy New year to you and yours.

Thanks. My condolences on your loss.

FWIW, not all celebrities are singers, actors, or sports figures. My home state lost a favorite son last month: his was a vet of WWII & Korea, one of the original NASA astronauts, and a many term senator. He was a role model to all, and when someone accused h of never having a "real" job because he only had his military and NASA experience behind him, reamed the politician a new one. I submitted a meme on his passing that never featured, but he lived much of his life in the public eye and was a role model to look up to.

Every field has its heroes and celebs.

ok then y do ppl cry when they talk bout 9/11???? Hypocrite

Well, if you are an American, then 9/11 was a big deal. I suppose that if you're Syrian, then Aleppo (sic) is a big deal.

Since I am not Syrian, nor do I know anyone from that shithole, I personally give less than two shits about them. They've been killing each other for thousands of years, it's nothing new.

then why do ppl have monuments of the citizens who died in WW2 in america??? Hypocrite

Because we don't blow up our own cities in "holy wars". If Syria is so great, why don't you move there?

It is very unfortunate that America is in denial over this and that the majority of good people involved take a backseat to the minority of trigger happy lunatics. We are the most violent regime in the civilized world. Only the Philippines executes more people int the streets.

This is all from the official numbers. This is what the Fast and Furious police policy does.

Obamas policies, starting with Fast and Furious made America more dangerous. The riots and protests were misguided and directed at people that werent responsible. BLM is a black group that identifies as "democrat" and "liberal" so its leaders gave Obama a free pass. Probably because all the death and destruction is great for fundraising. Its all the result of 8 years of Fast and Furious based police policy in the US.
