Beauty Fades

Actress Farrah Fawcett died today. She lost a long fight against cancer. Her iconic role as one of the original Charlie's Angels 70's is what I best remember her for. I vividly remember watching it as a kid and being slacked-jawed at her beauty.
But, she is no more. Peter said it like this: all men are like grass. The grass withers and fades away. The glory of men (and women) is like a flower.
The bottom line: Beauty is fleeting. Don't put your trust in it--even when the surrounding culture prizes beauty (and youth) above everything else.
