Thanks L , I never understand why people refuse to accept addiction as a medical condition, It has already been proven.. But i guess it is human nature for some to down play someones tragedy and turn it into something they could have fixed if they wanted to, some people cant.. It is also human nature to think that "if I can do it, anyone can" but that isnt true either, there are plenty of situations when two normal healthy people cannot do the same thing with the same situation..
I think it comforts people if they can point a finger and pass a judgement on why something horrible has taken place. It makes them feel safe, in thinking it could never happen to them because they would never be so ______fill in the blank, (stupid, lazy, careless, reckless ) .. I often hear the same about victims of rape or theft and victims of the banking crash (as though anyone could have seen that coming) ..
Trying these drugs are stupid, but let he who hasnt ever been stupid cast the first stone. She made a bad choice in marriage, but with the divorce rate at 50% that is hardly uncommon, Her music did
help shape my life and get me through some really hard times.. She didnt have
to sing.. she could have kept her voice to herself and lived a normal life,, But she wanted to be a star, and that life introduced her to drugs.
People grieve in different ways, the media reaction is insane, but this is their realm she was their peer and they should grieve in what ever way suits them, and comforts them.. sorry so long :P
