Man, 2016, what on Earth are you doing to us? David Bowie, Brian Bedford, and my (and so many others') beloved Alan Rickman gone in the same week. The world of entertainment is crushed and countless hearts are grieving, as hearts do and should. We're designed to process the loss of those who made an impact on the world. Even if we never met the person, that fact is irrelevant (I'm talking to you, cynics...get over yourselves), and it's more than ok to cry and feel sad that they're gone. It hurts when someone's talent touches your life and that someone is taken away. The pain is real.
I guess it helps a little to know we're not feeling this way alone. We can at least take solace in that.
