Today at 0855 Carrie Fisher, best known in film as Princess Leia from the Star Wars franchise, passed away.
I am not typically "hit" by celebs passing away. Perhaps I'm simply overly sensitive this time of year (the holidays) - or perhaps it's the immense impact she had on a universe which has inspired me, touched me, and helped inspire so many of my own passions.
She was as strong as young Princess Leia (1977/A New Hope) as she was as General Organa (2015/The Force Awakens). Yet so much more as well.
Several of the Lightsaber groups on Facebook are issuing "Sabers up (for our Princess)".
I salute you, Carrie, for your impact on nothing less than the world.
May your Light always inspire #hope
She reminds us that even in the face of great sadness we must maintain #hope.
