Karen Carpenter Dies of Anorexia-Related Heart Failure (1983)

Anorexia nervosa was a little-known disorder during Carpenter's life, but her death brought it lasting media attention.

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.

Karen Anne Carpenter
- A talented and skilled singer that put sweetness in music with her voice and attitude on stage.
- Unfortunately, she wasn't able to deal with personal problems as well as not received the proper care from people around her in identifying the real problem, driving her to very dark places of depression and loneliness.
- This day marks the end of this light in the pop music. However, once cast, light travels longer than the universe, so does her.
