It pains me to watch Whitney Houston destroy her life. I don't know her personally and don't know anyone that does know her. I have enjoyed some of her songs, videos and movies. She's talented but I never thought she was the talent that she was marketed to be. It's not like I had any real voice in the matter either.
Whitney is a human being. She is a daughter, a wife, a mother, a sister and an aunt. Like her or not, one has to feel sorry for Whitney and her family. If the truth be told, Whitney Houston is a slow-motion train wreck we've been watching for a few years now. How and why has she sunk to this level? Is this her turning point? I pray that it is.
At this point, Whitney has to save herself.
