As if 2016 hasn’t sucked enough already, Carrie Fisher, Princess Leia from Star Wars, passed away today at the young age of 60. She suffered a massive heart attack a few days ago and died earlier today. I was 13 in 1977 when I saw Star Wars for the first time. To this day, it is the single greatest movie-going experience I’ve ever had. My young heart also fell in love with Carrie Fisher that day. I loved her portrayal of Princess Leia. She was strong, powerful, brave, and beautiful all at the same time. I’ve grown up with Star Wars. It has been a significant part of my life for almost 40 years now. I’m deeply saddened by this news and, though I didn’t know her personally, I will miss Carrie Fisher greatly. The world was better with her in it. Rest in peace, Sweet Princess, and May the Force Be with You.
