It’s always sad when we hear that a beloved celebrity died.
Most people think of celebrities as immortal beings that will never age or die, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Because of their position in the world, they’re more vulnerable than you and I.
They’re easier to get to and catch off guard.
Obviously, not every celebrity death is the result of foul play, but none the less the circumstances and end result are still as tragic.
Last year (2016) was a good example of this. It seemed like every other week a beloved celebrity died.
I couldn’t handle it!
