She didn't want to go to rehab...

It's a sad day in history when more people are talking about the death of Amy Winehouse on Bacefook, then the fucked up killing in a youth camp in Norway.  Amy Winehouse had talent, a good voice, etc., she was young and had her life ahead of her, but she chose her path, was a real mess and died.  It is hard for me to feel sorry when someone, who has the means to get help (read money, among other things) makes all the wrong decisions and lives the way she did.  It was a questions of choices and she made hers.

Those kids at the youth camp didn't do anything; they were at the wrong place when a crazed fanatic decided they had to die.  Bombing, violence and random shooting are becoming a 'normal' thing almost.  It's sick to think we, as a society, have become so detached about what goes on in the world.  It's not happening here, so... we're good.

I may need to grow a heart, but today I'm kind of happy my heart is well protected and not overly sensitive, 'cause it is one sad day indeed.

Yea, I went to the paper to see what was going on in Norway, and instead I was bombarded with Winehouse. It's sad, but she should have known better.

Just to be clear, my comment was not in any way aimed at you, my dear.

Steph: Indeed

Matius: Rest assure, I didn't think it was me, since I had not commented yet. ;-) Seeing comments all over FB about how saw people were about her death, when much 'graver' things are going on in the world is somewhat disturbing... that's all.

This is because our "news" has been taken over by "entertainment" which takes priority over substance.

By the way, I heard that we are involved in the longest and most expensive wars in our nation's history... maybe it's just a rumor, I don't see anything about it in the news!?

I guess it's been a tough week for a lot of people, not just me.

I have chosen unemployment and sobriety.

Yay for me!!

I guess Amy wasn't so lucky last week.

Hugs and love!!

Robert the Skeptic has a good answer. I personally do not watch any tv. Never. So I am out of the brainwashing mode.

She did make her choice. Which was hers and hers alone. As we each have.

The little country of Norway was so shocked and overwhelmed as we were for them. The rage and misguided right to act in whatever way people want is tearing apart many countries. Supposedly people have rights but when someone kills another person the killer has rights they just took from the victim. I don't get it.

Amen, Amen, Amen. Not ONE person on my FB said anything about it, but TONS were going on about Amy. It is a sad thing that "our" fascination with celebs outweigh our human compassion.
