๐Ÿ‘ Watters on the Death of a Celebrity

Liked HEWN, No. 269 by Audrey Watters (Hack Education Weekly Newsletter)
Iโ€™m not ashamed to admit that I can be struck โ€“ deeply struck โ€“ by the loss of a celebrity. Like the loss of Carrie Fisher and Prince in 2016, this one hit me hard. We tend to attach a lot of meaning to stars โ€“ and not just the meaning that Hollywood star systems and the like hope we will. Stars matter because they are inspirational and aspirational, and even when they are larger-than-life, they are, in the end, fragile and human. They live and breathe and love and suffer and die like the rest of us.
