it was ok

As I mentioned in my review of "Evita: Saint or Sinner?" Evita seems to have developed a character and acted it out. Then over time she seems to have believed she really was the character. When she was hit with uterine cancer (& refused treatment) that set her up for dying at the age of 33 (the same age as Christ!). She wrote these missives on her death bed. There is some truth in them and that is probably because she was facing death and seeing things more clearly? But mostly it is just ramblings although they are impassioned. She SO wanted to believe that she was a person of the poor for the poor yet she leaves behind a Swiss bank account with 25 million dollars in it and a wardrobe consisting of 400 dresses and 600 hats. Yikes! I am still left confused about this icon!
