Where do I even begin to talk about the evil in the world?
How does one get the idea to shoot someone? Let alone someone so young and talented? Where does anyone think that killing someone is the answer for.. anything?
Did I watch the Voice? No. I’m not into the type of Reality Shows. But after hearing about her passing and seeing her following I did catch some of her covers on Twitter and Youtube. With her fans I have to agree that she is a talent that the world was waiting for and will truly, epically be missed because some yahoo was granted not one but TWO guns and a knife and took her 22 year old life.
Thank the heavens that be that he brother reacted so quickly and took the assailant down to keep her fans from ending up on the wrong end of a bullet as well.
I bring more attention to this because I know that many have known the pain and hurt of murder. Whether it be by the hands of a stranger or someone they knew, by gun or other wise. And while the entertainment world mourns the loss of miss Grimmie, she leaves behind a piece of advice that struck me, even if I am not a religious person, that I think she’d like passed on to others in the stead of her death:
“Sometimes God allows terrible things to happen in your life and you don’t know why. But that doesn’t mean you should stop trusting Him.” ~Christina Grimme
What she says here is basically, so much wrong can go on but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t a purpose of good behind it. Sudden and seemingly unnecessary death doesn’t ever makes sense. But you never know what the other end of the fall out was or will be. We can only hope that Christina’s untimely end has some higher purpose even if it is truly devastating.
She is being mourned and this loss is a wound that may never close.
RIP Christina Grimmie.
I’m sorry you were taken so young. Hopefully, it means your purpose was completed here even if you had so much more love and talent left to give. You and your family are in my thoughts.
