No to Drugs-Music,Youth & Amy Winehouse Dies 27

Amy Winehouse’s death is such a tragic waste – talented singer, loving family, a voice of youth.

Drugs are ‘friends’ that invite people in for a party, but drugs are not friends and take everything:-

They destroy familes, young lives, community.

Young people are so vulnerable – I personally know young people trapped by drugs, some are in and out of mental health hospitals, can’t keep a job, live for the next hit and some have died like Amy.

Music is such a real way to reach emotions, express emotions, reach into lives – but it’s got to be NO to drugs. 

Amy’s death is so deeply sad.
