My friend's sister died today. She overdosed. The saddest part is, everyone is so surprised. She was only 17, top of her class, had her future all lined up, very straight edge. She wasn't just some junkie who overdid it. I just can't stop wondering why. Why did this happen? Why did she do it? Why didn't she survive? I can't imagine the terrible loss my friend is suffering. I have a sister who's the same age as his, they were in the same class; I can't imagine losing her right now, so suddenly and unexpectedly. I wish I had any words at all to console him or comfort him, but what can you say? What can anyone possibly tell someone who has lost so much that would help them in any way?
