Wasted Lives

I'm guessing the title of this posts gives away what I am talking about.  The world is full of news of death at the moment, all starting with the incidents in Oslo on Friday, so sad that so many innocent people have been affected by this and my thoughts are with those poor families affected by this tradegy. 
Secondly I was shocked to hear the news about the death of 27 year old Amy Winehouse.  Shocked, I'm not quite sure why as it was bound to happen sooner or later but I kind of hoped that she would beat her demons and come through this a stronger person but the addictions were too strong for her to beat.  She was a very talented person and it is a shame that she could not do more with this or that someone else could have had these talents who would have benefitted from it rather then throwing it away.

She was a very troubled person and I hope that she has now found peace now that she is in a better place, although I cannot imagine what her Dad must be feeling right now, he never gave up hope on her and I loved that about him, a man who reallyloved his little girl and to him that is exactly what she was.
