Dear Princess Diana,
While I was not born during your prime, I remember seeing you and what you did and finding it all so inspiring. Coined “the People’s Princess,” you set out to bring kindness and care back into the world. You were in a position of power where it was seen as taboo to speak out about issues such as HIV and AIDS, and yet you didn’t care. You wanted to bring awareness. You made personal visits to schools, homeless shelters, and were a fierce advocate for the arts. You used your platform to encourage others to give to charitable causes. You changed the face of the British Monarch.
I remember watching interviews of yours and feeling a sense of relief. I had never seen someone on TV (not in the 80s, but still) that had so much sincerity and genuine care for people. You made a difference in the world and I thank you for that.
