BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. We don’t know exactly the reason for her death but we know she died while he was bathing. I think she slept in the bath while she was taking sedatives like some newspapers say. This event is similar to Amy Winehouse and many others great artists death. Many things happen like this in the life of fame.
    Really is a shame to lose people like Whitney. She was a beautiful woman with a wonderful voice who wrote increcibles lyrics. She will be remembered for a long time…

    PS. I love all Whitney songs!

  3. It's a pity to lose a great singer who was recognized as the queen of pop. She had a beautiful voice and her songs made my hair stand on end. We don't know exactly how she died, but I think probably by the excess of drugs. She had a lot of social problems along her life. As Vanessa has said, her death is very similar to Amy Winehouse's case. Why are celebrities often involved with drugs? Perhaps they can't bear the price of fame.
    I enjoy her songs a lot! :)

  4. I think Whitney had a voice beautiful and everytime I hear the song "I will always love you" made my hair stand on end. Surely she died because fame made ​​him do won a lot of money and put it in the drug world. But I think she not died by the drug and the situation was caused by an accident. She is a singer who has made history and nobody will forget it.

  5. I was shocked when I heard that piece of new, I couldn't believe it. Whitney HOuston was found dead while she was having a bath. It isn't know which could be the reason but most people think it was because of drugs. Succesful people have often problems with drugs and this is a really sad fact. WHitney Houston had an incredible voice and she was recognized as was one of the best singers in the world. I've always loved her songs and I will always remember her and I hope I am not he only one.

  6. This is a terrible piece of new, she was a great singer but I don´t like her music.
    This is another case of death of singers by the drugs, like Michael Jackson, James Owen Sullivan ( Avenged Sevenfold ) or Amy Whinehouse, however and unfortunately this is very normal in the singers, they enter in a world that is very difficult to leave, the world of druggs. I hope that more talent will not dissapear because of drugs.

  7. I'm very sad of Whitney Houston's dead because she has been one of the best singers in the world with Michael Jackson. His songs are wonderful and they always will be remembered by everyone. My favourites, among many, are "So emotional" and "I will alvays love you", of course.
    The cause of death is said to have been the drugs and alcohol. Why the majority of famous people die from drugs and alcohol? It's a shame.
    Having so much money hurts the humanity. They don't know what to do with so much money when it isn't necessary, and they spend money on things like this.

    PD: The definition of "obituary" can be a notice of a person's death usually with a short biographical account.

  8. I think that Whitney Houston was one of the best and most popular singers in the world. When I had news of her death I became very sad and I remembered Amy Winehouse who also died in a similar way, because of the drugs. It's very sad that so rich and famous people die due to his drug addiction. This people have everything in his life, money, reputation, friendship, but this is not sufficient for them and they look for refuge in the drugs and the alcohol to be happy. I hope that cases like that do not recur and that people are aware of the danger of drugs and alcohol.

  10. Unhappily, nowadays we are getting supposed to these sad deaths. It looks like that you have to get drunk and buy drugs to be an authentic famous. What a pity! In my opinion these are the consequences of the declaration: "sex, drugs and rock and roll" A lot of famous music idols have died for it. I mean to Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin or Amy Winehouse. We must tell the truth, this declaration can´t bring us happiness only temporal smiles that each time are less and less. Unfortunately this declaration is already the motto of a lot of people.

  13. She was a great singer and she had a beautiful voice. I think that is a pity to lose a successful singer just because she was addicted to drugs, the same as Amy Winehouse. I love some of her songs, like "I will always love you", and I think that she will always be remembered for her fabulous voice and for being one of the most successful singers in the history of pop music.

  14. A lot of musicians die very young, and "the voice" is an other example about this. In my opinion, she sure had much pressure and lots of concerns. So when you are famous you must be careful about your social situation and all the other people who follow you. Many of these people are only interested in your money... so you sometimes must look at this false friends with many attention. If not, they can give you drugs for "heal" all this concerns, and that´s very dangerous for life.
    I think that Witney Housten has happen just this, and that she died because she ingested too analgestics... so it´s a similar history to Janis Joplin or Elvis Presley.

  18. I think Whitney Houston was a good singer, she had a very nice voice but I think her life there wasn´t a good life, she had very important problems with drugs and alcohol.
    I think many times famous people died for drugs because they have so money and they spend it in drugs...

    But I think we mus remenber ONLY de good part of Whitney, we must recorded as a good singer.

  23. Whitney Houston had a wonderful and amazing voice but she snatched her gift with drugs. I think she had everything she wanted but she didn't see it. Now is so late, she's dead, she didn't live to maximum her life. She had a gorgeus voice and everyone knows it. For me specifically I love listening to her song "I will always love you", this song has a lot of beautiful feelings and is very moving.
    Even though she made a fatal mistake, everybody will always love her and never she won't be forgotten, she will live in ours hearts forever.

  26. Is a pity that these deaths continue happening, but this is what it makes the fame and money. I haven’t heard many songs of Whitney Houston, but from what my father told me, was one of the best female voices than ever. Is neither the first nor, unfortunately, the last death occurring as well but recently, we also lost another great voice such as Amy Whinehouse by the same causes of the death of Whitney. I think it's a pity that these great talents disappear for this, but we'll always have his music.
    The most famous Whitney's song is 'I will always love you' but my favorite song is 'I wanna dance with somebody'. I leave it here to enjoy it:

  27. Whitney Houston had one of the most beautiful voices in the world, and, however, she missed her talent because of drugs and alcohol. It's very sad that so rich and famous people die due to his drug addiction, looking for refuge in them, but sometimes that's the fame's price. A lot of famous music artist have died for it, and who knows it? perhaps the next victims will be Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber, because achieve success when they are too young, it can cause them problems and they can fall in the tentation and end badly. I think she will always be remembered because she was a talented person with a lovely gift and although she's missing us, we'll always have his music.

  28. I only knew two or three songs about Withney Houston but the truth is that I knew that she was a wonderful singer and that she was involved in the drug world. The day before his death I watched a program on MTV where she was a music video. I wathed in the news that she was the singer of the song I always love you.
    I think that other similar case is the death of Michael Jackson beause both were about living legends of music.
    I don´t think that the price of fame is too high, I just think that there are a lot of famous that fall into the drug world as Diego Armando Maradona.

  29. The song "I will always love you" by Whitney Houston is dedicated to her bodyguard. It's a very beautiful love song that you can hear in the film called "The bodyguard" featuring Whitney Houston. This song makes me feel sad and my mother too, because Whitney Houston died due to an overdose. It's really sad because she was a great singer with an amazing voice.

Her song, "I will always love you" is wonderful, I really like it! It's about love. When I was child, this song was very famous and now too.
