The day our mother traveled to Atlanta to get you so you could start your rehab you decided to have a last hoorah you could say. If I would have known I would have called you the night before and talk to you all night so you wouldn't call your dealer. Drug addiction took my big sisters life at only 22 and this is by far the hardest thing my mother and my three younger siblings will ever go thru. I can't belive it had to end like this I'm sorry I couldn't do more Amanda I'm

Jesse I am sorry for your loss of your sister Amanda at such a young age to drug addiction. We hear all too often of drugs claiming another life. If only it was easy to come off drugs and stay off them. But the journey is long and hard and often many don't realise the implications on a life before they decide to try this out. There are so many pressures on young people nowadays that so many are experimenting and not realising down the line what this does to the body. I hope this will be a lesson to other young people that may decide on drugs as a way out of their suffering. It actually creates more suffering which is never ending because the craving is for more and more. It actually destroys the mind and the body and the family. Jesse I doubt there is much you could have done to save your sister. She would have become aggressive towards you if you tried. So don't beat yourself up over this. Your mom will need a lot of support as she has lost a child and this is the worst sorrow a mother can bear. What you can do is to highlight what drugs can do to a family and the one taking them and help other's avoid this. You can actually save other lives. This would be more productive than feeling guilty. You lost a Sister and will have to grieve her loss which is very painful. This pain won't last. But you can make sure none of your siblings will choose drugs. If they go to parties or hang out with their friends that they should learn the word NO. Even if it means walking away from friends. Better to lose people as friends than to lose your family or your own life. It is the one's who are left e.g. your mom that has to pick up the pieces and will suffer the pain forever.
