In this new year of 2018 we have been given new things to want and have. New styles, music, and trends. But with this new, comes the ending of the old. We have heard of all the rappers and people who have died far too soon by gun violence, drugs and alcohol. People tweeted and talked about the good days of their life and how amazing they were. 

With all of this going on, we see people coming out to talk bad about others. A few days ago, Mac Miller sadly passed died because of an overdose. With this new chance, some decided to shed light on addiction and others took it upon themselves to be rude to his family and past lovers. One of the most recent is Ariana Grande who is receiving constant hate for being a ‘reason’ for his death.

Mac Miller was not the only one who’s been drawn in again by addiction. Demi Lovato, a singer who was drug-free for a long time, succumbed to addiction which could have killed her.

This shows the power of drugs and the terrible things that they can do to you. With the family and fans on the edge, there are others who are also being affected by this, or going through the same thing. We should try and be positive and comfort those who are hurt.  There is a huge number of people who have passed away because of it and were too young or innocent to struggle with this. Do not let this go unnoticed. Make a change. Be careful with putting something dangerous in your body. It’s not important enough to risk your health and future.
