Someone told me there's a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.
1. Almost everyone deserves to love and be loved.
2. There is somebody for everybody.
3. Be careful what you wish for, you might get it.
4. God loved us first.
5. There is no acounting for taste.
Little Amy was one of the first people I met when I came to town. She was flamboyant with a spike in her lower lip yet moody and sullen at other times. She would visit my friends and his daughter and tell of the miserable lot that life had thrown her. Mom had mental health issues and Dad was a meth head. She was living with foster parents while maintaining contact with her parents. Being 18 she was close to bouncing on the streets but her guardian was a person who really cared. I should mention that her Grand Parents were stable but there were a lot of Grand Kids to spread the love around and Amy was just one.
It's even worse than it appears, I could tell Amy had been damaged in more ways than that. There is a dark side to this town, a dichotomy if you will. There is a lot of pretentious moral posturing to avoid a paradigm of social decay. Amy was probably abused in one of her prior foster situations, it was so sad.
Suddenly in the summer of 2002 Amy suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and despite a crainiotomy and many hours of surgery, Amy bled out and passed away at the young age of 18. never got to know true love. I can only hope that God's will was to spare her from a worse fate.
Elysian fields forever Amy.
I am sorry for writing about so many tragedies, but what goes in comes out.
