|I never met or even knew who River Phoenix was|
until very recently, but from what I read about him
I found out that he was a wonderful, caring and
compasionate person and it's such a shame
that he was robbed of his life
by this terrible killer, drugs.
But I am filled with sorrow knowing that he was
not the last person to be robbed from the world
and from those who loved him because of drugs.
But by remembering River and his legacy
maybe we'll somehow be able to
prevent such things in the future.
I will always remember you River
and you will forever stay close to my heart.
