Their Shadows Searching In The Night.

I was going to talk about TV today - and maybe I'll do that later, but right now I'm feeling kind of sad about various news. The last thing the internet told me before I went to sleep last night was that George Zimmerman was found not-guilty on all charges and the first thing the internet told me when I woke up this morning was that Cory Monteith is dead. So…

Apparently we live in a world where it is okay to kill an unarmed child. There will be no justice for Trayvon Martin.

Also, we have lost this wonderful, talented actor.

R.I.P. Cory Monteith
May 11, 1982 - July 13, 2013

They have to do an autopsy to discover cause of death, but there were no immediate signs of foul play upfront. If it turns out to be drug-related…well, that just hits too close to home. And not just for my own sake, but when thinking of my older brother, who like Cory, struggled with addiction in his teen years. Cory’s story was always so inspiring to me and even when he relapsed, that he made the choice to seek help was uplifting. And he really did seem like a great guy. I remember him on ‘Kyle XY’ and even though I really wanted Kyle and Amanda to end up together, I couldn’t help but genuinely like Charlie, and I always felt that was just Cory shining through in his character. I haven’t watched Glee in a few years but this is still sad news and my heart goes out to Cory’s family and friends.
