It’s been a while I know and what brings me back today breaks my heart. When I thought 2016 had given me all I could bear Rickman, Cohen, Bowie, Michael & Prince and all the personal issues, this…my hero is gone.
Carrie Fisher to me was who I wanted to grow up and be. I remember being devastated my hair would not make proper Leia buns and of course most of us identified with her as Leia, she herself was as strong and determined. I wanted to be her and in some ways, I guess the chaos in my life echos hers. I was proud to see her publicly wrestle her deamons and stay strong, though I wish she’d had the ability to privately do so, it gave those of us wrestling our own issues courage. She was sassy and upfront and will be so missed.
Guide us General Leia, give us courage and strength to fight the dark.
