Carrie Fisher is dead at the age of 60. Born from the legendary Debbie Reynolds, Carrie was destined to be a princess.

On her way back from London, Carrie suffered from a major heart attack.

Carrie is best known for portraying Princess Leia in Star Wars. Recently she published, "The Princess Diarist," giving fans a unique look into her life. Her writing shows how fearless and honest she was.

Thoughts and prayers go to the family!

Feel free to comment below about how Carrie Fisher has impacted your life!

It was not until recently that I watched Star Wars. With the new movies coming out, I wanted to become familiar with the older movies. The universe was confusing, so I have been rewatching them before getting into the new movies. The new movies to me are really for the fans with a lot of hints to the older movies.

While watching the old movies, I was familiar with Princess Leia from her cultural impact. I was surprised by how fierce she was. She was out there fighting alongside the men. She was not a damsel in distress.

From what I have heard of Carrie Fisher, this was an element that shone through in her performance.

I am a fan of "Singing in the Rain" and "Halloweentown," so to hear that Debbie Reynolds was her mother made me more intrigued with who Carrie Fisher was. She was in Hollywood when there were scandals and drugs. To learn that she was part of it did not surprise me, but her strength in overcoming that was inspiring. It is not easy to overcome drugs, especially with a mental illness.

It was surreal to read an article that said she was in stable condition and then the next minute that Ms. Fisher had passed. It was a whiplash moment. Then the anger over 2016 on Facebook and the outpouring of love throughout the internet swept me away, a stranger.

“Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter,” Reynolds said via Facebook. “I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop. Love Carrie's Mother”


Rest now Princess.

Your job is done.

There will be no more distress.

You lived a life of up and down

But through it all

You wore your crown.

      She was a person we will always remember as a princess with character. Thanks for the background on her life and passing. She was way to young to die and I can't help but believe that her difficulties in life may have attributed some to her early death.
