Carrie Fisher spoke openly about her struggles w mental health. To me she was a hero – not only in the stars – but here on Earth as well. 💔

Just taking a moment to remember Carrie Fisher as a writer–smart, sardonic, self-aware, very funny, observant, tough but not unfair.

Farewell Carrie Fisher, the writer, actress, icon and wit. So very sad.
