Yesterday would have been her 64th birthday.
If she hadn’t left us too soon.
But she left a legacy that is powerful.
On December 27, 2016 the world lost the woman who brought us Princess Leia. Honestly, I didn’t follow much of her other work until then. I was shocked at the loss I felt that day.
So I started researching.
I started listening to her books, read in her own voice.
I started finding everything I could about her. Her struggles, her honestly, her triumphs.
In her book, Wishful Drinking, I found a quote I felt summed up her contribution to the world, but that could just be how much it speaks to me personally.
Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher
