'I have so little time left!' Jane Fonda, 76, she comes to terms with her own mortality
The London Daily Mail ^ | February 24, 2014 | Colette Fahy

Posted on 02/24/2014 7:55:51 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

She may not look anywhere near her 76 years but Jane Fonda says she is well aware of her age.

The Hollywood legend – who has made her career in an industry which isn't exactly kind to aging actresses - admits she has been brought to tears on more than one occasion recently as she comes to terms with her own mortality.

In a thoughtful blog post entitled 'Crying', which has since been removed, Jane wrote: '[I've been thinking], how come my tears are so close to the surface? And I’ve come to feel it has to do with age. I have become so wonderfully, terribly aware of time, of how little of it I have left; how much of it is behind me, and everything becomes so precious (sic).'

Despite Jane worrying about her mortality, she believes getting older has its advantages, namely allowing her to appreciate the beauty in the world.

She said: 'With age, I am able to appreciate the beauty in small things more than when I was younger perhaps because I pay attention more.

'I feel myself becoming part of everything. I seem to be super sensitive to people's joy and pain. I ache for unwanted children in the world, for polars bears, and elephants, and Monarch butterflies, and dolphins, gorillas and chimpanzees (sic).'

Most recently Jane found herself becoming emotional at her friend Kerry Washington’s baby shower on Sunday.

She wrote: 'Today I was at Kerry Washington’s baby shower. She's 7 months pregnant and looking radiant.

'It was a wonderful party with guests being asked to go into a photo booth and take 6 different poses that were then mounted on a black paper where we could write a message....

Well, she has good reason to cry. Liberal philosophies don’t hold up when measured against the infinite.

She evidently is just finding out, she is not nor ever was, god. (Deliberately no caps out of respect to our creator, there.)

I hope she has time to think about the little time afforded to the tens of millions who died at the hands of her Communist fellow travelers.

She used to be a real babe, now she’s quite scary looking.

She could play the evil kid eating witch.

I saw a movie on cable where she played the aged grandma hippie, that was interesting.

My bladder also aches for her demise. My bladder has been waiting for decades for this slut to go two meters under so I can contribute my share to the yellow river which will be flowing across her grave. I know I’ll have to wait in line and it will be a long wait, but I’ll join that long gray line.

” I seem to be super sensitive to people’s joy and pain.”

That must be truly awful, if she is thinking of the VietNam vets she hurt. But I doubt that. She seems to be focused on animals.

She needs to come to the annual POW/MIA Symposium here in a few weeks and see and hear about the affect she had on the lives of the guys who were there enduring six and seven years of captivity and torture, and their families to whom she could’ve got word to about their being alive, as they had to wait all those years in wonder and worry. When all she had to do was take time from her praise of the North Viet Namese and her condemnation of our men and just done that.

Then she can apologize and go on in peace, which she obviously cannot do.

We will hear how it is so hard to die as if she is the only one to have done so, and we’ll be told to think it’s so normal to be an atheist whose love of country and family has no rules, just her own.

But I imagine the respect she garners among her own family and friends is about even with she gets from these wonderful men who seem to want to spit when they say her name to tell their encounter stories.

I wonder if we here at FR, even among those reliable champions of hers, could refrain from these Jane Fonda stories as they will come in the next ten years as she emits the longest guilt ridden dying scene.

That kind of guilt and certainty of Hell will take a lot of years.

I will not respond to any of her defenders. Just saying.

There’s a photo of her at the site that shows excessive plastic surgery, but she didn’t hide her horrible old purple claws. Gross.

Ah yes...at long last she begins to ponder the "last things":

When Thou comest, O God, upon the earth with glory,
the whole world will tremble.
The river of fire will bring men before Thy judgment seat,
the books will be opened and the secrets disclosed.
Then deliver me from the unquenchable fire,
and count me worthy to stand on Thy right hand, Judge most righteous.

I thought she had become a born again Christian. She should not have fear of her mortality.

If she is not born again by the time she dies, she will get what many believe she has coming.

I’m at the point now where I don’t wish that on anyone.

JMHO, but if she is truly a born again Christian, I think she should at least apologize for the evil treasonous life she has lead, and the damage she has caused.

Public sin/public apology.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Under most circumstances, I tend to agree with you. For example as much as I despise Clinton, hillary, BO, etc I really have no care for where they will spend eternity.

BUT

Fonda is a special case.
She and Kerry were virtually the same person..
they both interacted with the North Vietnamese.
In the 70’s they both denounced the Military and I have no real animosity towards them for that.
My problem comes when 20 or so years later they both come back addressing the very people they damned earlier with some sort of false pride, strictly to further their own careers.

Kerry, I don’t care where he ends up, at least he did do the time.

Fonda, as far as I am concerned, Hell is to good for her.

For a ‘reminder’ check #15 out...THAT IS NOT PHOTOSHOPPED.

Kerry, I don’t care where he ends up, at least he did do the time.

They're both despicable traitors, but I find Kerry (BTW, did you know he served in Vietnam?)even more reprehensible. Any former service member who would provide aid and comfort to the enemy deserves a special place in hell. Then there are the fake Purple Hearts - the hits just keep coming with Lurch....

Her skin is probably very thin which allows easy bruising. My mom’s was that way a few years before she died 3 months short of being 103. Her legs looked worse. Just my $.02.
