Leave the woman to rest in peace!!
If it was just an ordinary person, no one was talking about it.
She was a woman and an amazing singer
Let us remember her that way!
If almost $400,000 is not that much money to Willard Romney; I know Willard can not understand the need of an extra $40 a paycheck to an average american family.
How many hours of news coverage can you give this woman.A great talent that threw it away for drugs blah blah blah....never heard that story before....Think i would rather see news that affects me or my country ,,,,,and this dont..cmon cnn shame on you..Leave this crap for headline news......
For your information, Our church 'Word of Life Ministries', Freeport, N.Y. has a very successful Drug Program.
Whitney Houston chose the demons that she lived by and because of who she was it was public. Our children, today, are seeing the world lift her up on a pedestal and giving the image that all the things we tell them to stay away from are really ok at the very least. Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson, various actors, sports stars who chose this demon are all lifted up. Lower the state flags to half staff.....REALLY?????
Not once in the last week have I seen the three service men who have died this month or the 26 who died last month mentioned. Our priorities are askew and don't think for a moment that our kids don't see it.
please stop looking back over whitney's personel and private life pass troubles that all done.
help her family heal at this time with the postive things she done. it may be news but sometime
old negative news should be kept to it self.
It is sad but I know some people who were adicts and have died at a young age from drugs.It is so sad that our government does nothing to stop that garbage from coming into our country from mexico and whereever.Another reason to vote all incumbants out.Jim Thomas Phx.Az.
Thanks for your information!
