I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, what does age matter!?
It doesn’t. At all.
When it’s your time, it’s your time – and that might be before your 82nd birthday, and it might also be before your 32nd.
Age really is irrelevant. I don’t know if this opinion’s strengthened recently because one seems to be regularly writing obits for young, in-their-prime entertainment industry professionals, or attending the funerals for friends and family who were just beginning their lives, or that maybe it’s just a sign of the times, with the stance today seemingly that age is of less importance as maturity, understanding and a common goal, but I truly believe age should be done away with.
Cory Monteith. A star on TV’s “Glee”. Dead at age 31.
It hurts seeing that number. 31. Far too young.
Media reports say the young actor was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver, suspected dead of an overdose. Horrible.
Speculation can be spared, what matters is that a young man whose life was really just beginning and who had so many experiences still ahead of him – and I’m not just referring to his career, though it clearly was just beginning too – has ended prematurely.
The Canadian actor, who appeared in films like “White Noise : The Light”, “Final Destination 3” and “Deck the Halls”, before landing the role of the jock Finn on TV’s “Glee”, spent the last night of his life out enjoying the company of his friends.
Our condolences to his friends, family, and many, many fans.
He had been seeing Lea Michelle, his co-star on “Glee”… I feel for her a lot.
Life is too short my friends – if you love someone, tell them; if you miss someone, tell them; if you want to do something, do it now – tomorrow might be too late.
Take that opportunity that would change your life; take the hand of that person who will change your life AND you.
See you at Comic-Con this week, guys.
Let’s take a look at some of Cory’s great work on “Glee” :
