Billie Lourd is just one celebrity who shared a touching Mother’s Day post on social media today. She didn’t need a lot of words to explain how incredible and powerful her mother will always be, the entire world knows. Carrie Fisher was Princess Leia, a shining example of light within the darkness, and a woman who spoke her mind to people across the world. To Billie, she was all of those things as well, but first and foremost, she was the woman who gave her life and the safe place in this world where she found strength and solace.
Her Mother’s Day tribute was especially touching and captioned with nothing but a heart, said it all.
The photo, captioned with just a heart, is extremely touching. Billie’s strength, after losing two very important women in her life within days of one another, has been something people have looked at her in awe of. Most of us wouldn’t have handled that loss with such grace. It’s a testament to what she learned from both her mother and her grandmother, and how much of both of them is in her spirit, too.
She spoke recently about her mother’s strength and dedication to her craft at The Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, among many things, Billie said that Carrie taught her by her own example that the most evolved people are both the strongest and most vulnerable.
‘She taught me by her own example, that the most evolved person is seemingly a contradiction — they are both the strongest and the most vulnerable person in the room. And that was her. That is Leia.‘
‘…but I knew him’
