I awoke today to find out on Facebook that one of my favorite artists had passed away.
I was first introduced to David Bowie when I was about 10 years old by my older cousin when she sat my brother and I down to watch one of her favorite movies, Labyrinth. I instantly fell in love with that movie and it remains my favorite movie of all time. As the years went on I slowly started to listen to his music, watch his other movies, and just become more immersed in this amazing artist. So, to wake today and find out that someone I’ve loved since I was 10 years old has passed away has broken my heart. I knew one day he’d pass away because we’re all human and that’s what we do. Every life ends, but I wasn’t expecting it to be so soon. My heart breaks for his wife, children, family, and friends. My prayers are with them as I’m sure they’re all trying to deal with this loss as the rest of world tries to deal with it as well.
We love you, David Bowie. R.I.P.
