Help Me Understand...

So, a couple days ago, I read that Cranberries frontwoman, Dolores O'Riordan, drowned in her bath in her London hotel room after drinking herself into a stupor.  I also read a few days ago that Kyle Pavone, the frontman of metal band, We Came as Romans, OD’d.  Both had upcoming plans within the coming weeks, or in the case of O’Riodan, the day she died.  My question to you, why?

On the flipside, Burt Reynolds died of a heart attack at 82.  He was 2 days shy of shooting his part in Tarantino’s new movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood…a cruel twist of fate, indeed.

Two different cases, the first set, preventable, the second, maybe, but age has to be factored.

I’m trying to wrap my mind around why, if you have everything going for you career-wise, why you’d want to chance sabotaging things with a case of death in the case of drug abuse, and, like I’ve said before, drug abuse starts with a conscious choice, so I don’t buy the disease bit.  MD’s a disease, cancer’s a disease.  Obviously, money doesn’t buy common sense.

Outside of choices, I understand people’re complicated, so I understand there’re other factors, but at the core…just why?

Be good to each other.
