It is with much sadness that I announce the sudden and unexpected passing of a friend, the beautiful and talented writer/pundit Bre Payton, 26, from the complications of the H1N1 Flu and Meningitis. Bre was a staff writer at The Federalist, the conservative publication founded by Ben Domenech and was a frequent guest commentator on various news shows. She was 26 years old. There is no doubt in my mind that she will be missed, but firmly embedded in the hearts of everyone who knew her.
This is a reminder of the fragility of life and that bad things can happen to anyone at any time. Rest in Peace Bre. Our prayers are with her family, friends, and especially her boyfriend Ryan.
Just because something bad hasn't happened yet, doesn't mean it won't. It can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere ... are you now wondering, Am I Next?
