If you’re wondering why so many people are eulogizing Carrie Fisher it’s because we just lost a powerful force in the world. No, not the force Yoda mentions but the mother flipping power that comes from women-in-command-of-their-own-outcomes that Fisher demanded. In her writing, her performances, her interviews, her relationships and her experiences. If you haven’t experienced her beyond the bikini or side buns, go search out her words.
We may have lost her life force but we have her legacy – and that eternal force will live on.
Rise Up, Carrie Fisher. We will continue the fight. Thank you for leading the way.
