Another Goodbye

So, when the news broke that Whitney Houston had passed away Saturday afternoon, on the eve of the Grammy Awards, it literally knocked the wind out of me.  With her, goes a piece of my childhood.  Whitney and Madonna gave a young, scared and lonely gay boy a sense of hope for the future.  Sadly, it was a sense that she couldn't seem to hold on to in the glare of the spotlight.  The pressures of her life must have seemed unbearable.  Such beautiful, pure talent.  Such a glowing soul.

Gone far too soon.
