Amy Winehouse

It's just sad. Period.

"You could see that coming a mile away" seems to be the quote of the week since 27-year-old Amy Winehouse's death. True enough, I guess, but isn't that just a shame? Why do so many people's hearts seem to be so cold about it? Do people just have no sympathy when it comes to the disease of addiction? Yes, some people get clean but many don't even if they really want to.

Amy was in and out of rehab three times, despite the picture her famous "Rehab" song painted of her as the "no no no" girl who would never seek help. Her tortured soul and heart were crushed by alcohol and drug addiction and unfortunately death proved the only was out of that prison for her.

When a person seeks help for addiction one of the first things they are led to do is to remove themselves from the situation and the people that are supporting their disease. In the case of Amy Winehouse and many other celebrities, there are just as many who profit from them staying sick and addicted as those who see them out of their nightmare.

A terrible waste of a life and a talent.
