Candlelight Vigil For Bobbi Kristina Brown Being Held In Georgia As Family Hopes For A Miracle
Conflicting reports on the condition of Bobbi Kristina Brown continue to be churned out, but amidst the difficult time, her family continues to hold out the hope for a miracle that can save her life. Last week, the family was reported to be facing the decision of whether to take Bobbi Kristina off of life support at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta after she showed "minimal response" to a brain activity test. Although the reports that the family had began gathering at the hospital to "say their goodbyes" were contested by a few of the never ending "close sources," but now, the latest news is that a candlelit vigil will be held for Bobbi Kristina in Riverdale, Georgia on Monday, Feb. 9.
According to a source from the Brown family who spoke with People, the "Shining a Light for Healing" vigil will be open to the public at the Amphitheater at Riverdale Town Center and fans are invited to join the family in praying and giving well wishes to Bobbi Kristina.
Since being found unconscious in her bathtub at home on Saturday, Jan. 31, endless reports have emerged about the cause of the incident and Bobbi Kristina's current condition, but her family has released few details. One of the most disturbing reports, according to TMZ, is that various family sources have even "confirmed" that police did indeed find drugs in Bobbi Kristina's home after a secondary search.
The truth of the matter is that regardless of who her parents are, Bobbi Kristina Brown is a 21-year-old woman who is holding on to her life in a hospital bed, and whose life deserves to be respected. And in a somber turn of events, this candlelit vigil comes only two days before the three year anniversary of her mother, Whitney Houston's, death on Feb. 11, 2012. In spite of what reports may say, the family refuses to give up on Bobbi Kristina and they invite fans to do the same.
A family source told People,
Everyone is praying; we have laid hands on Krissi and have been praying for a miracle. I don't know why that is so controversial. If it were your child, you would do the same thing. Where there is life, there is hope.
