For those of us that grew up with Episode IV, know then as ‘simply’ Star Wars, Hamill, Ford and Fisher were more than just heroes they were super space heroes. Leia was the first person we ever fell for. We loved them, we cheered for them, as the trilogy continued, we felt for them in every possible way. They were part of us, part of our history…from space!
Later as I was older, I would read Carrie Fisher’s brilliant books and she was one of the best voices shouting out about depression, which helped me know that I was not alone, if the greatest of all space princesses could be screwed up, then I could survive it too.
So long, Carrie, we love you. ❤
