On Sunday night, a girl by the name of Trinity McDonald had simply had enough of her battle with herself and depression, and took her own life off 12 stories in down town Lincoln. This girl was simply amazing in life. She was a singer with the most beautiful voice. She artist with the kind of creativity and drive than I could only dream of. She was an absolutely stunning woman, the kind that people would compare to a goddess. Yet, despite all these things, she was a kind soul, and the kind of person who would make you feel like you were on top of the world when she spoke to you. She could hardly know you, but she would ask and listen about your life as if it were the most important thing going on. She would always have the largest smile on her face, and the tightest, warmest embrace for everyone, even if you were just meeting her for the first time. It is with no doubt that she was loved very much so by everyone in her life, but sometimes what's going on inside a person's head is too much. Trinity McDonald will surely be missed. I have never seen more young people from all walks of life be brought together by one girl, and I find that truly amazing.
"Energy is neither created nor destroyed, that is the first law of thermodynamics, the first law of the universe. You may no longer be with us physically but your vibrant energy of happiness will always be with us, it can not be destroyed, it has touched too many lives to be lost. I can't see you anymore, but you're there, you'll always be there, just in a less organized way."

I hope, like all great artists after they go, your art continues to thrive as a memory of you.
