Man, 2016 has been rough.

The news that genre bending icon, Prince, had died in his Minnesota home yesterday (April 21, 2016) did not go down well for most of us. Prince's contributions to music and culture left a great many people mourning the legend who truly changed the landscape of popular music. 

One such mourner is a Georgia teacher named "Mr.Pat". One of his students, twitter user @shvrdae, captured the heartbreaking moment he found out Prince had died. He can be seen watching a video, removing his glasses, and burying his head in his hands in total disbelief. 

This probably isn't too far off from how many other people were feeling when they found out the news. Undoubtedly, some of us returned to Prince's performances, like the "Purple Rain" clip Mr. Pat is watching, the shock hitting us like a ton of bricks. 

Mr. Pat later tweeted (probably in response to the video of him landing on CNN) that Prince changed his life.
