Gary Coleman

Been watching, a lot of Different Strokes
episodes on youtube lately, it's quite
sad that Dana Plato and Gary Coleman are
no longer with us.

When people say Gary Coleman  was the
greatest kid actor in TV history, they're not
mistaken, what a great little guy he was, his
catchphrase, his cheeky little smile, his all
round bubbly personality, it's just horrific
that the adults around him, didn't look
after him and in same cases he was forced
to work when he was suppose to be
in hospital.

I don't know anyone around my age that
didn't love Different Strokes, and didn't
love Arnold.

If only you could go back in time and warn
Gary and Dana what was ahead.

Glad to see though that Todd Bridges is
doing well, wished it had a happy ending
for all of them.

Reality is no friend of the dreamer though.
