I wonder if all of the hype and idolizing of him obscured the fact to his associates that at end of the day each and every one of us have this in common; we all suffer.

It wasn't until Prince's death, as I relived his music's impact at various times in my life, that I placed that night in the midst of those dark months of bullying and hopelessness.
