Eulogy to a Passed Star

On Sunday, I found out that Cory Monteith, from the hit show 'Glee' was found dead in a hotel room on Saturday.  He was only 31 years old.  No cause of death is known at the time of my writing, but there was an autopsy scheduled for Monday.

For those of you that follow me on Twitter and Facebook know how much I love that show! I wished that show would have been on when I was a teen, it might have made those teen years a bit better.

The older I get, the more Hollywood deaths affect me.  Maybe I'm too emotional, maybe it's my age, but hearing of his death deeply moved me on Sunday.

So here's what his character, Finn, and Monteith's portrayal, has meant for me:

-It's OK to have nerdy friends
-Cool kids/people have problems, too
-Good roles, jobs, careers, (fill in the blank) aren't always handed to the good looking people
-It's OK to struggle with the issues that we fear, as long as we face our fears and educate ourselves

What celebrity passing has affected you lately?


Is it possible for two Civil War veterans to find their place in the world on the Kansas Prairie?
When the War Between the States ended in 1865 many Americans emerged from the turmoil energized by their possibilities for the future. Frank Greerson and Gregory Young were no different. After battling southern rebels and preserving the Union, the two men set out to battle the Kansas Prairie and build a life together. Frank yearned for his own farm, away from his family—even at the risk of alienating them. Gregory, an only child, returned home to claim his inheritance to help finance their adventure out west.

Between the difficult work of establishing a farm on the unforgiving Kansas prairie, and the additional obstacles provided by the weather, Native Americans and wild animals, will their love and loyalty be enough to sustain them through the hardships?
