|Yesterday I lit the 6th candle of rememberence|
for the person who was River Phoenix.
Every year I light the same candle,
at the same time, for the same person.
It must be the only routine thing
that I do in my life right now.
This might sound weird but I want to thank River.
His experience and his death have led me off the path
of drugs and through him I have learnt so much about
the world and the things that we are doing to it.
Because of River and what he believed in I have become
a better person and the fact that he can do that for me
makes me love his beliefs and the memory of him.
The fact that he is still touching people
all around the world shows that what he did on earth,
in his time, was for a reason and that love for him
still exists through his family and fans.
