Only Amy could stop the drug taking.That statement has me baffled on several levels.
Thanks for the clarification, TJ - I broadly endorse your sentiments.MY Quote.
The only person who could change how her Dad feels right now is Amy.
Only Amy could stop the drug taking.
Only Amy could stop the booze.
Unless we hear otherwise. Only Amy either OD'd or her body packed in on her through whatever she put it through.
Her Dad would have supported Amy in every way he could. And hats off to him. Just watching a daughter implode like that must have been soul destroying for him. And lets not forget he has been watching it happen for a few years now.
Therefore only Amy could change how her Dad feels right now because she could still be alive, perhaps back in rehab or on some sort of program to kick her demons.
All in all a sad story.
I think it's rather unseemly to try to play one death off against another. Each event was tragic in its own way, and it's futile to try and draw comparisons between them. If you found out that some of the children killed in Norway had experimented with drugs, would you then be saying that they were more deserving of their fate than those who hadn't? This is a dead-end argument.The world might be a poorer place but she chose to be in that place. The kids in Norway didn't have a choice
Not forgetting the 32 who died in the derailment in China, where fingers are being pointed at government corruption resulting in compromised safety standards. And the thousands dying in Africa...It's quite sad that this happened, but in the same week-end that more than 90 (mostly young) people died at the hands of another in Norway, it pales, not into insignificance, but a bitter perspective is drawn.
At first I thought it must have been posted before the news was announced, and that they were just a bit slow about taking it down, but no - a little digging reveals it was posted today.

No, but consider that those in Norway and china had no input whatsoever to the situation, other than wrong place, wrong time. The consider what happened to poor Amy.Not forgetting the 32 who died in the derailment in China, where fingers are being pointed at government corruption resulting in compromised safety standards.

This is not a numbers game. The media might like to rank disasters by the numbers involved (and more usually by the number of Brits involved), but on a more human level, every death is a tragedy for those affected and a news item for the rest of us.
Broadly in agreement with you, ***. If you or I were to die tomorrow, I doubt that many would mourn our passing beyond our families, friends and other acquaintances, and that's how it should be.No, but consider that those in Norway and china had no input whatsoever to the situation, other than wrong place, wrong time.

She would have known there is an "element of risk".
Its a terrible tragedy, and I can take your point regarding her "talent", however, is that too say that if I were killed (and I have no talents at all, trust me, I am remarkably inadequate and talentless) that it would be a lesser loss to humanity if I were to carp it tomorrow.
Seems a tad brutal to me. I suspect its because of her celebrity status, but sadly so many people are taken from this planet before their time, everyone of them a tragedy, somemore so.
I'll give an example of a young girl. 18yo. Off on a gap year around the world, you know the sort, back packer type. Off to uni to do medicine, folks had a big house in Buckinghamshire, minted. She goes for a swim in a lake in Africa, maybe not the wisest of moves, Hippo gets her. Dead. She might not have been a singer, but she would have left behind a family, friends and people that cared about her. However, there was not the "commotion" around this girls death.
Its the fame aspect. That's all.
