Minnesota’s Turns Purple Mourning Prince

Bruce P. Corrie, PhD,

Minnesota turned purple on Thursday mourning Prince and this video helps explain the reason why – Prince brought the ordinary person into his life and constantly showed people all over the world that in this frozen tundra there is warmth, innovation and family. MnDOT lit the I-34 bridge purple to celebrate his life and soon the whole world followed. In life he lit up the world and in his passing the world shines in the dark.

If reports are true that this first photo on MNDOT’s Facebook page got millions of hits then perhaps we should consider naming that bridge after him.
