Well, not to plagerize the Beatles, I read the news today oh boy..
When I woke up this morning, I read the paper on line, as I always do. An article about some girl getting 12 felonies for drugs. blah blah blah. But
then she said, her friend had died of an overdose and she was just all messed up, I guess. Well the article said the girls name that overdosed and my
jaw hit the ground.
Its noone famous or anything. Just and old friend from school. I read her obituary and sure enough, it was her. After a little shock, I searched her
name in the paper and found an article about her from a year ago, where they found her nearly passed out in her car, with her daughter in the back
seat with a tshirt wadded up, acting as a diaper. She was on crack and pain killers and blew a .23. Car was crashed. Noone was hurt though.
See, in todays obit, it said that she now joins her son. So as Im reading this, it all comes together. This girl grew up, went to a good school, got
married, everything was going great. Then when she lost her child, she went off the deep end. There they found her in March with her child. She was
nearly out and had wrecked her car. I couldnt believe it. This girl..it just dumb founds me.
Then I thought, how sad. Noone to help her. To go from where she was, to how she died...Its terrible. I feel for her family and her. I wish there was
someway of reaching people in her situation. Makes all of my problems seem insignificant.
I lost my mother when I was 15 and never received any sort of therapy for it. I wish I would have. Would have made the next 10 years alot more
productive. Anyrate, I always thought that would happen to me. I felt like it alot of times. I did alot of drugs, but always pulled out before it got
outta hand. Somehow, I always get by, but I hurt for this girl. I guess I was lucky.
I hope she finds peace now. This might sound dumb, but if any of you are religous at all, maybe tonight you can say a little prayer for her. Her name
was Kirsten. She was a good person.
