Feeling Eternity

by Kathryn Jean Lopez


At Whitney Houston’s funeral in Newark, N.J., today, her Bodyguard costar, Kevin Costner offered in his eulogy for her a message for young girls with dreams about their futures. “Maybe they’re thinking they aren’t good enough,” he said. “I think Whitney would tell you: Guard your bodies. Guard the precious miracle of your life.”

“Then sing your hearts out,” he said, “knowing that there’s a lady in heaven who’s making God himself wonder how he created something so perfect.”

What a beautiful reflection for every human being, about the precious gift of life.
