I have tried to avoid weighing in, publicly, on Whitney Houston's death. I didn't know the woman. I didn't know her family. I didn't even care to know the rumors surrounding her life. I never heard the 'wendy williams' interview (until, last night). However, I do know addicts. I know addicts who have experienced unspeakable horrors and that use substances to try and stuff them down. And, I could see the road Whitney was traveling. As I saw her struggle, my only thoughts were, "please, give her the strength to make it."
