You didn’t honestly think I would stay away for an entire three months, right? I’ve been reading/writing a lot more than I thought I would, but it can get dull at times. And I’ve been thinking of this, occasionally receiving emails about likes and follows.

I know this post is well overdue. It’s meant to address the life and death of Christina Victoria Grimmie.
Even as I write this post, I am listening to her Season 6 performances, the entire album.
She was the entire reason I started watching the Voice. She had the most beautiful voice I’d ever heard, with such deal and control over her tone that most people don’t find in their entire life.
If you’re not familiar with Christina Grimmie, I highly recommend you go onto YouTube to watch her performances or covers, even though the Voice later took down all her videos.
I am still devastated by this news. Christina had lived twenty-two years, way too short for the voice of an angel. She was gone too soon, and the worst part is that most people only started caring about she was gone.
Like the Boris Yeltsin quote goes; We don’t appreciate what we have until it’s gone. Freedom is like that. It’s like air. When you have it, you don’t notice it.
Christina Grimmie probably never dreamed that she would die by being murdered by a man she didn’t know at the young age of 22. She probably had dreams to get married, have kids, and grow old with the people she loved. All those dreams vanished in an instant as those shots were fired.
When I heard about Christina’s death, I was numb. I knew what fatally meant, but it couldn’t have meant anything.
But all my worst suspicions were confirmed, when I read through the article about Christina’s death.
Several shots to the head and torso ended a beautiful singer’s voice. I hope she didn’t suffer during those last hours of her life. I wonder what her last thoughts were before she slipped away from this world to the next.
When she woke up on the morning of June 10th, did she wake up knowing that this would be the last day on Earth? Did she have plans in three months for something like skydiving? She was so alive in all her videos, how could she be dead?
Then things were made even worse when someone hacked into her Twitter account and wrote The End. Worse, people liked it, retweeting it.
I offer my condolences to the family of Christina Grimmie, who lost a wonderful daughter, brother, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and most of all, a singer. Whose spirit burns brighter as time goes by, but will not burn out completely.
