As a child of the 80s, I was more enthralled by mainstream Michael Jackson, Madonna and Cyndi Lauper than by edgy Prince. My life had little angst, so Prince's dark and dangerous persona held little appeal.

Prince's death a few days ago hit me hard. He was relatively young, vegan, healthy -- not a person we'd think would be found dead one morning. In a blink, he was gone. We have no idea really how he died.

Prince and Princess and Misplaced Priorities

Jeff Schweitzer

The death of a celebrity like Prince evokes a response that reveals more about us than about the deceased. Our chest beating in grief is a bit self-indulgent. Cronkite was a dinosaur from the past, but one who understood this and reported accordingly, but he was probably the last one to do so.

As I read stories written about Prince since his untimely death, I realize there are some loud messages he's left us to ponder. One of the most crucial is: it's okay to be different. In fact, it's not just okay. It's important, necessary, vital even.
