Rest in Peace, Dr. Donda West

Much has been said and written about the sudden death of Dr. Donda West, mother of Kanye. I can only imagine the emotional turmoil that challenges him as he was very close to his mother. I am confident that Kanye will overcome this situation in the style that his mother would have wanted. Dr. Jan Adams, the physician that performed the cosmetic surgeries, will likely not escape penalty. I won't recount his various indiscretions but let's just say that Kanye will likely use all of his resources to assure that Adams is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Several questions have been posed as to the extent that Dr. West employed any effort to confirm the status of Adams' medical license. This case will be around for a couple of years.

In the meantime, women must re-evaluate the necessity in undergoing plastic surgery. Personally, I think Dr. West looked great. But what I think didn't matter in her world. We must stop allowing a few people in the world to determine who is considered beautiful and who is not.

If I could, I'd give Kanye a hug and just let him work through his grief the way he feels is best. Just don't let his mom's death be in vain. Unless you are disfigured, please reconsider the need for surgery. Check your physician's credentials whether you have a serious medical condition or not.

Rest in Peace, Dr. Donda West. Ashe'.
