Last week, I learned that a guy that I went to elementary school with died. He was born the day before I was. We used to walk together after school. He was the sweetest little boy.
Anyway, he was in the hospital. Then he was released. And the next thing I know, I get an e-mail from a mutual friend, telling me that he died.
Now, I'm not that old. I'm under 30. I told one of my uncles that a friend had died, and he said, "What was it? Coke? Heroine?" I said, "Why would you assume that he died of a drug overdose? He actually had a heart condition, and his heart just gave out."
Uncle then says that he was so young, he just assumed it was a drug overdose.
