Fall From Grace.
I am saddened to learn of another famous singer’s death as a result of suicide. Mindy McCready’s songs told stories of life. Realizing that she had so much to live for, yet, had to have been in so much emotional pain and isolation, and only saw suicide as a solution to end her pain. Nobody should fall from the edge of their lives alone and unable to reach out for help. Rumors and speculations will amass. Judgments and criticisms will be whispered as we separate ourselves from the unpleasantness of death.
Can we take time to see how we are connected in the same wanting of kindness, acceptance and respect?
Will we each take the time to reflect upon her as a person of value deserving of kindness, acceptance and respect?
Will we each take time to really care about the people around us as people deserving of the very same kindness, acceptance and respect?
Will we each take the time to realize that each and every one of us is fragile in life and that fame and fortune does not buy us happiness?
Will we take time to value ourselves and each other for the rest of our lives, or will we allow ourselves to be swept under by the tide of mayhem?
No one person wants to fall from grace.
