Let's Make This Day Hero Day

Hello all.

I read the news of David Bowie’s death and hoped it was a hoax. I could be mad later, as long as it wasn’t true. It couldn’t be true after all. This was David Bowie they were talking about. If anyone can be immortal, surely it would be him. I mean, he’s the Goblin King…


But, it wasn’t a hoax…

Somewhere between two beats of my heart I understood.

I mourned, I sang, I slept (somehow) and I awoke.

But he, a man who has been so influential in so many ways…a man I connected with before my teen years because he was the Goblin King, because he was the only artist I had ever seen who was like a chameleon, because so much more… He would never wake again on this plane.

I am writing this just before I have to go into work.

I want to call off. I want to sit and mourn and think of this great man that we lost, but I’m not going to. I am going to do something I think he would have liked better.

I’m going to help someone today on purpose. I am going to be a hero to someone, just for one day.

So I say we mark David Bowie’s death as hero day.

We find someone who needs something and we help them.


Share this post, share the idea of this post, make this thing viral. Make David Bowie’s death day Hero Day.

Help me do this internet.

I think the Thin White Duke would like the idea too.

RIP David Bowie, you sir are immortal to me.

“I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing, will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be heroes, just for one day

We can be heroes
We can be heroes
We can be heroes
Just for one day…”

  1. I still remember the first time I listened to ChangesOneBowie. At the time, all I knew of David was the song “Fame”. That album really opened my eyes to his music. I was going to say “genre” but how do you pin him down? I tend to prefer the early “glam rock” years, but there are gems all throughout his career, including the “Heroes” song you listed above.

    As often happens with old friends, I had lost track of David’s music. When I heard of his passing and learned that he had a recently released album called “Blackstar”, I decided to check it out. Very interesting stuff and for anyone who hasn’t already done so, I invite you to check it out.
