Lately I can not get Jas Waters off of my mind. This beautiful accomplished woman who was in the entertainment/media/film industry who is no longer here. It is so important to check on your loved ones especially these days. In the covid-19 era we have no idea what's on our loved ones minds. We all see so much craziness all around us it can be stressful and take a toll on our mental health. As we know it does not matter how rich or famous you are, it doesn't matter how beautiful or successful you are. You can have everything and still feel as if something in your life is missing. A lot of suicidal people never leave a note or any warning. We have to be over cautious of our self and those around us. These are extremely sensitive times. I am writing this letter in honor of Jas Water as a black woman, journalist, writer and suicide prevention advocate.

Not even a year after the death of Hip Hop artist Gustav Elijah Åhr, better known to the rap world as Lil’ Peep, rapper and producer Malcolm James “Mac Miller” McCormick has died of a drug overdose just like Åhr. What has to be remembered in cases like this is that if a person wants to get high, they’re going to get high. You can step in like a speed bump and try to slow them down, but if they’re willing to risk it, they’ll speed up and just hop over you.
