Aloha Friday...Events of 2009

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link over at Island Life. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

This week's question is:

What one news item stood out to you the most in 2009 and why?

Mine was Michael Jackson dying...I was in Detroit, MI that weekend and was being trained by Donald Trump and it was interesting to here his take on Michael Jackson and his life and the death.

Don't forget to comment...Happy 2010!!!


  1. Good question. I have to admit 2009 is such a distant memory now. LOL. I would have to go with the Tiger Woods story. I know it's tabloid fodder and not as important as Obama, but I was shocked.

    Happy New Year!

  2. I'm gonna have to say the death of Michael Jackson. That news was probably the most shocking for me.

  3. The election of Obama was actually 2008, so I'm going to go with Michael Jackson's death. I'm still surprised by it!

  4. actually, it would have to be the Tiger Woods drama. i am not a big golf fan, but no one saw this coming. my heart aches for his family still, and i don't think his career will ever recover. also, so many young kids looked up to him as a role model. kids today need positive role models. top stories in the media consist mainly of celeb drama, or are celeb related. i think the media needs to take more responsibility and focus on people making a difference. the lead stories on CNN, or the Today Show should not be about Charlie Sheen, or interviewing one of Tiger's "transgressions." take care and happy 2010.

  5. because I live in IL. I would say all the controversy over our governor

  6. I guess Tiger, because it is most recent...

  7. Michael Jackson's death! He was an Icon!
