It has been suggested that Amy Winehouse death might have resulted from her attempt to withdraw from alcohol on her own. If this is so this would be the second case I have heard about. Many of us are not aware that just like cocaine and heroin, alcohol can produce serious side effects if you attempt to withdraw from it on your own. Using a line from Amy Winehouse song; They tried to make me go to rehab, I said “No, no, no” Maybe this is one of the time she should have said “Yes, yes, yes” Then again, maybe it was her time to go. Such a tragic loss of a young life. At the age of twenty-seven, gone too soon. We however do not know what demons she was fighting or why she chose to do it on her own. All we can say is RIP Amy. There are no more problems for you to wrestle with. God Bless.
I close my eyes and reality sins in, the past, the present intertwined. A vivid contrast of what was and what is. And yet if one digs deeply enough, it is clear that nothing really changes. People born and people die. People get married and people get divorced. There are devoted parents and there are those who don’t really care, all living together in a world where sometimes strange things do happen. There is a road which we all need to take. One which path will lead us to true happiness. Question is, how many walk that path? How many are able to find that road. Many spend their lives searching for it; some not even understanding the true meaning of happiness. Maybe it is time to change that perspective and begin to enjoy each day to the fullest!
Who has anguish? Who has sorrow? Who is always complaining? Who has unnecessary bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes? It is the one who spends long hours in the tavern, trying out new drinks? Don’t gaze at the wine, see how red it is, how it sparkle in the cup, how smoothly it goes down. For in the end it bites like a poisonous snake; it stings like a viper. You will see hallucinations, and you will say crazy things. You will stagger like a sailor tossed at sea clinging to a swaying mast. And you will say “They hit me, but I didn’t feel it. I didn’t even know when they beat me up. When will I wake up so I can go for another drink?
Let us wage a war against violence and crime, hostility, retribution, hatred and revenge. Let us fight for peace. Cry peace, peace, peace. Let it be a fervent never ending prayer upon our lips, this cry for peace. Let us be brothers and sisters and friends.
“One of the greatest challenges that we often face in life is that of taking steps to implement our ideas and dreams from just mere thoughts into reality. We must therefore surround ourselves with a team of people who will offer positive advice, constructive criticism and words of encouragement if we are ever going to be able to make such transition in pursuit of what we desire.” ( Michael W Williams)
