Dear Marilyn,

I have loved getting to know you this past week.  It has been an honor.  My perception of you has certainly changed.  I admire and adore you.  You are an inspiration to me.  You conquered this crazy industry and were at the top.  You made it.  I just wish that you didn’t have to fight so much pain as a result.  I feel like I want to write a song for you…

“Goodbye, Norma Jean.  Though I never knew you at all.  You had the grace to hold yourself, while those around you crawled.  Goodbye, Norma Jean from a young man girl in the 22nd row who sees you as something more than sexual… More than just our Marilyn Monroe.”  Oh wait, I didn’t write that.  Thank you, Elton. 

Love, Allison
