In a little less than two months, it will be the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death. On August 5, 1962 Marilyn Monroe passed away much to young, and left a void in a grieving nations heart. Now, nearly fifty years later, people from all over the globe celebrate her and the life she lived. You can find memorabilia, quotes, pictures and more on Marilyn. Practically anywhere you go, you will find merchandise with her beautiful face or name in fancy scroll on it.
And though so much time has passed, one truth still remains ~ you either want to be Marilyn or you want to be with her. This truth is even stronger today than it was fifty years ago. She is THE one icon that knows no bounds. All generations, ethnicities, classes, etc of people celebrate her life, and not just in the U.S. Fan groups are all over the world ~ from China to Australia to Great Britain.
Many, many, many of these people, coming from all over, are planning to make the pilgrimage to Los Angeles, California to celebrate the life of Marilyn Monroe. Will you be among them? Below are a few fan clubs that we are familiar with and know that they are planning many events over August 4, 5 and 6th in honor of Marilyn Monroe.
We would love to hear of your plans. Whether you travel to Los Angeles to be with thousands (possibly millions) of other lovers of Marilyn or you have something planned in your own neck of the woods, we would love for you to share the details with us. Just post your comment below!
As for us, we plan on being in Los Angeles and sharing in the celebration of a wonderful life that was cut short all too soon. In our hearts, as in many of yours, Marilyn still lives today.
Blessings, K.R. and T.L.
