Turning up in a Purple Rain-inspired lace gown and sporting a purple Love Symbol tattoo just below her collarbone, the veteran actress paid the perfect tribute to the late singer.

‘I admire great artists and he was a great artist,’ she told The Washington Post.

Mirren added that she wished the ‘tattoo’ had a better back story than the truth – which is that she did it herself.’

She confessed: ‘I’d love to say that Prince himself did it in 1988 or something, instead of me in the bathroom this morning.’

Mirren received a special mention from President Barack Obama during his speech at the dinner. He said: ‘Helen Mirren is here tonight.

‘I don’t even have a joke here, I just think Helen Mirren is awesome. She’s awesome.’

Mirren is currently starring in technological war thriller, Eye In The Sky, as Colonel Katherine Powell, a military intelligence officer leading a top-secret drone operation on a mission that quickly spirals out of control.

vulnerabilities, families are broken left with out closure. driven by desperation they seek  help from

law enforcement and private investigators. this epidemic affects men, women, and children.

distorted by mistrust, anger, worry, anxiety. a deep spiritual unrest that permeates the

the very core of who they are. their self image, and  eternal perception of self is warped

and twisted. their spirits are broken, they are hardened, and apathetic.

the nature of this crime is cold and calculated. deception skews the victims concept of love.

“Why do we Ignore pain until it can no longer be Ignored”

Pain is the opposite of relief, people tend to pacify it with simple ineffective solutions that subsequently compound the problem. it is our human nature to shine it off, unconcerned with the potential ramifications of allowing it to remain untreated, slowly progressing in its intensity pain forces you to take action at this point your nerve endings are on fire, your discomfort can no longer be ignored. your mobility is compromised, eclipsed is your effectiveness, and your ability to complete day-to day simple tasks…

"Why do we Ignore pain until it can no longer be Ignored"

 Why ignore pain until it can no longer be ignored?

Pain is the opposite of relief, people  tend to pacify it with simple ineffective solutions that subsequently compound the problem. it is our human nature to shine it off, unconcerned with the potential ramifications of allowing it to remain untreated, slowly progressing in its intensity pain forces you to take action at this point your nerve endings are on fire, your discomfort can no longer be ignored. your mobility is compromised,   eclipsed is your effectiveness, and your ability to complete day-to day simple tasks. you are not your normal self. we must evaluate our life choices big and small.this is a very humbling experience in the midst of my pain i cried out to God, he formed me with his own hands, he knows me best.

He has the power to heal us, he sent me several warnings to make changes in my life.out of stubbornness and ignorance I ignored his voice. God often uses different rods to discipline his wayward children, circumstances, pain, people, God wants the very best for us, he wants to guide and protect us from dangers seen and unseen, discipline is one of his means to accomplish his purposes in our lives. we often ignore his voice until  we feel discomfort, pain is a mega-phone, it captures our attention instantly our full undivided  attention. Pain exposes our deepest vulnerabilities, we can no longer hide, we must face the facts motivated by our suffering we would not attain otherwise, this broadens the scope of our understanding and the realization of the actual reality of the physical conditions of our bodies, and are bodies limitations. In the process we are taught through our sufferings respect, consideration, and care. I know in my heart I have to make some improvements today.
