Norma Jeane Mortenson

June 1st Celebrates Norma Jeane Mortenson

If you haven’t guess it yet, Norma Jean Mortenson is Marilyn Monroe, and if she was alive today, we would be celebrating her eighty ninth birthday with her.

I don’t think of Marilyn Monroe’s death as tragedy, but when something happens like this. I pray very hard to help make sense of it all, and to come to terms with it. And I think that in Marilyn Monroe’s case, she just wanted to take care of all the little things that meant so much to in her life, but it just wore her out, and it wouldn’t let her do all the things she wanted to do. So she went to a place where she could be a guardian angel, and where she could stay young forever, and always be beautiful.

It sounds really simple and maybe a little stupid, but that’s how I get things through like this in life, when I try to understand things like this, because I hate judging someone if I never be in their shoes.

Which reminds me of the song that Elton John composed regarding Marilyn Monroe called, “Candle in the Wind.”

Today’s YouTube clip is brought to you by user name, Nemanja DJ, who made a wonderful contribution in this video as we remember the talented Marilyn Monroe on her birthday.

The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe is movie adaption that was presented over the weekend by Lifetime Network Channel, who starred
the actress Kelli Garner who played the legendary star Marilyn Monroe in Lifetime’s four-hour event “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe.”

The miniseries, which uncovers many closely-guarded secrets the blonde bombshell kept from the public, also stars Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon as Marilyn’s biggest secret of all, her mother Gladys, who was institutionalized for mental illness, and couldn’t remember her own daughter.

Based on J. Randy Taraborrelli’s New York Times bestseller of the same name, “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe” begins with a portrait of a young Norma Jeane Mortenson as she battles a lonely and loveless existence with an absent mother.

Despite the odds, Norma Jeane blossoms into a funny, smart and ambitious woman and soon reinvents herself to become the symbol of an era. She revels in stardom, yet remains a fragile artist, desperate for the approval and protection of men. The outside world never truly sees or understands the real Marilyn, a woman so different from her public persona.

In lieu of Marilyn Monroe’s birthday, what’s more important in life, is that we always have a successful exit, than a favorable entrance. Because what matters is not being clapped when we arrive, but what people remember about us, when we leave.
