As is often my way, I have written a long rant and have decided not to post it.
I just can’t say what I want to say in the way that I want to say it. So I’ll just say it in a simple way.
I have read here and there, but mostly on facebook, how Whitney Houston deserved to die because she was an addict. I find this disturbing on so many levels. I ask: Who (in their right mind) would, by choice, become addicted to…anything? Look in my parentheses. In their right mind. Exactly. People who have addictions are not in their right mind. Something isn’t connecting the way it should. There are those who face a lifelong battle with addiction. For some it’s a losing battle. And that’s so sad. Heartbreaking.
