Amy Winehouse, RIP
Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London flat from a suspected drug overdose. She was 27. I've been sitting at my computer for a minutes trying to think of something to say and the thing that keeps coming to mind is why do so many talented people allow drugs to rule their lives?
Do we think that we are supermen and women, who won't allow drugs to beat us? I've seen what drugs can do to a person...just in my own personal life and I don't understand even taking that first hit.
Or is there just a self destructive mechanism in us that makes us not care? I think that is exactly what it is for so many people, both average and famous. And I think that is what it was for Amy Winehouse. I didn't really know her music, but I think I'd like to take a listen.
