Good morning 3.5 readers.
Some sad news today. A 22 year old singer from The Voice, Christina Grimmie, was shot and killed after a concert in Orlando, Florida last night.
I’m kind of an old fuddy duddy and I don’t watch shows like the Voice so I’d never heard of her before but it sounds like many of you had.
As I read the stories, it becomes increasingly sad. She got her start on YouTube, utilized social media to get her music out there to the world, really took advantage of what technology allows today for budding young creative people.
Imagine being young and on top of the world, plus how happy all her family and friends around her must of been and then that to happen out of nowhere.
Obviously the guy was crazy. I was going to go on a rant about why crazy people do what they do but I will await the news to report the details of the specific kind of crazy that the guy was.
Generally speaking, while suicide isn’t the answer and in a perfect world, the mentally unstable would get mental help before doing something like this, I don’t understand why crazy people who get to this low point often feel the need to take someone with them rather than just go out alone.
Again, I don’t want to speculate further. My assumption is he must have been some kind of obsessed fan but we’ll probably find out more as the story develops.
What say you, 3.5 readers?
