What were you thinking when you first heard the news of the untimely death of young Amy Winehouse
? I went through mixed emotions from "well it's to be expected" to "how tragic" to "how heartbreaking."
I did a little research on Google and found that there have been many, many drug and alcohol related celebrity deaths over the years (dating back to the early 1900's).
So, in a moment (actually a full day) of research, I gathered together a compendium of such people and made the video that's included in this e-mail.

I'm hoping that by putting this together, at least one young life will be saved.
