The announcement of Whitney Houston’s death today, while not surprising, was still a shock. It’s a well-known fact that news outlets have had her obituary written for over a decade. She was on a death watch. Her angelic voice ruined, she was booed from stages around the world, slowly dying from a long-term addiction to booze and drugs…and we all stood by and watched it happen. Well, today it finally happened.
How many of the people (read: celebrities) writing “loving tributes” stepped in to truly help her?
Yes, some addicts are beyond help, but with money not an issue and rehab centers at her fingertips, if she wanted help and she was serious about getting clean, it was there. She certainly had a better chance than most addicts.
The keyword is “IF” she wanted help…maybe she didn’t.
Drugs always win!
Rich, poor, black, white, gay, straight, male, female…it doesn’t matter. Sadly, death is the guaranteed end.
The world lost you years before you died…today you just made things permanent.
One Moment In Time.
Listen and remember the many moments in time that Whitney Houston shared with the world. She will be greatly missed.
As the last line goes…”I will be free”.
You’re free now, Whitney.
