Bobbi Kristina Brown Dead at 22 and Gone To Soon

I remember when Whitney Houston wanted to have a baby so bad. I remember when she and Bobby Brown were trying really hard. Then their miracle baby Bobbi Kristina was born. I remember watching interviews and seeing the joy in Whitney's face when the baby she desired so strongly was finally in her arms.

Whitney tried to have another child, but suffered a few miscarriages.

I feel bad that the life Whitney Houston wanted to bring in this world, was only here for 22 years. I feel bad that Whitney and Bobby Brown turned to drugs to put a band-aid over whatever pain they were trying to numb. As a result Bobbi Kristina was a product of her environment.

I feel bad that Bobbi Kristina had to weather the storm of the media, which weren't always kind to her mother as she struggled with addiction. I feel bad that Bobbi Kristina was in so much pain from the loss of her mother, and exited the world far too soon. She left this world, very similar to how her mother left this world.

Bobbi Kristina had plenty of money and fame. But all she wanted was her mommy. This all goes to show that no matter what material things you have in life, they don't mean a hill of beans if you don't have peace of mind.

I went on Bobbi Kristina's Instagram page and ironically she wrote on her profile description, "Last of a dying breed...Daughter of a Goddess." Bobbi Kristina is back in her mother's arms now. I hope they both are at peace.
