News that Shirley Temple has died has awakened feelings of our own mortality in many of us. Her movies had become as much of the American way of life as a good baseball or football game on Saturday afternoon. Hollywood legend Shirley Temple Black died at 85 years old, reported Fox News on Feb. 11, 2014.

The movies of Temple helped to lift the spirits of millions of people during the hard days of the Great Depression. At 22 years old she retired from the screen and eventually went on to a career as a diplomat. When she died she was with her family at her home in Woodside, California. Temple, who began her film career at the age of three, was the most famous child star of her time and perhaps even of all time. She was a symbol of positive family entertainment during an era when people were suffering from economic hardship.

Temple, who was the top box-office attraction in the United States from 1935 to 1938, has died, reports The Washington Post. Images of her dimpled cheeks along with her bright smile as a brilliant singer, dancer and comedian will live on in the hearts and minds of people worldwide. The most famous little girl in the world will be missed very much. The inspiration of her memory should serve as a powerful force for young girls worldwide who want to accomplish a lot in their lives as Temple did.
