Hey, I know this is a celebration of his life and all, but is anyone else angry about how he died? I know that with most fans it's become the 'elephant in the room', but the more I learn about his life the angrier I get. I can't help feeling nobody gave a crap about him as a person. They built up this huge myth around him as a saviour of the planet. He parents saw him as a meal ticket and a way of preaching their points of view, they didn't care what he wanted. He was over-intelligent and under-educated. He was totally unsocialised and niave, he didn't know how to interact with anyone his own age. And that whole 'Children of God' thing? How murky is that? What about what River wanted, huh? He was a sweet, idealistic, (possibly abused) kid and forcing him into Hollywood was the equivalent of throwing him to the lions. I don't want to be comforted by Rivers death, I'm angry at those people who ignored him when he so clearly needed help.

You say he was undereducated and overintelligent. That's true, but education is not always the best for someone intelligent. I think it's more important to do what you like doing. I'm intelligent too, that's why I went to school again at 24 and am making A levels, the qualification to go to uni this year. But I don't think that school was good for me all the time, ALTHOUGH I'm intelligent. ?The German school system is not very modern, I know that because i went to school in Denmark too.
It's not true that no one cared about River as a person, but I know the feeling like no one cares if you're thrown out of school in grade 11.
But I think there were a lot of people who appreciated him as a person.

Sometimes, I do feel some of what you are feeling.. Sometimes, I can't figure out whether I am more heartbroken over his dying young or the stress and troubles he endured while still alive.

However, I believe that he died that day out of 'bad luck'..I don't think he purposely took 8 times the lethal dose and I don't believe he was always doing drugs. Probably more of an off and on thing... Not that the latter should be condoned...

Hello. It's been a REALLY LONG TIME since I visited or posted on here, but this thread sparked my interest. I have at times been angry too in reference to how he died. I see many people abuse themselves with drugs, MANY TIMES, and they are fine and go on. River, I am guessing, dabbled in it on occasion and yet it ended up killing him. It's a real shame. Some people do it and touch the line of death regularly, but never go over it (and die). River does it and dies. Many people I know have nothing to live for, River had it all to live for. We will not know WHY he did what he did. The bottom line is that if you do drugs, you are playing with fire. You may have a great trip, high, and you may have a bad one and ultimately die. It's like playing Russian Roulette. River paid the price for his actions, and yes, it saddens me and angers me, but he made the decision to put that junk in his body and ended up paying a terrible price. We will never know why or what could have been. I just celebrate him for the beautiful, humanistic, and talented creature he was. Peace to all.
