Beyond Blue

I had just finished my article about my three biggest fears in raising a daughter today–Britney, Paris, and Lindsey–when I checked out the brilliant monologue by Craig Ferguson on YouTube.

He says something like this, for all of you who can’t listen to the entire twelve-minute clip: “I’m no longer going to make fun of Britney, because I was once there.”

As a recovering alcoholic and as a depressive, I was so moved by his words, his humility, his poise.

How brave of him, as a respected comedian, to say: “Guys, lets not judge, because we don’t exactly have it together either. And there but by the grace of God, go I.”
