Diana; Not Just Royalty, but a Hero

Diana; Not Just Royalty, but a Hero

Rebeca Munoz, Editor

On August 31, we celebrated Princess Diana’s 25th anniversary of her tragic death. 

 

This is what everyone focuses on, the “princess’s death” but not everyone sees Princess Diana for what she really is and what she did in her short life. 

 

Diana was not born but married into royalty. She married Queen Elizabeth’s first son, Prince Charles and they had two sons, William and Harry. 

 

Although it may appear as Diana had the life of a dream, she faced many obstacles throughout her life. She suffered from an eating disorder and depression, which made her turn to humanitarianism and charity in a search to find purpose and significance in her life.

 

Diana started to dedicate her time to the poor, homeless, disabled, people with HIV/AIDS, and especially little children. She didn’t just give money to the people in need, but she really was dedicated and cared for these people.

The Princess also became good friends with Mother Theresa, they both worked with helping the needy and often worked together. 

 

Diana is considered a “realistic woman” because she really did have problems like every single other human being, the way she dealt with the many problems she faced is amazing. She is a huge role model to anyone who has problems in their life (which is everyone).

 

“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.” 

-Princess Diana
