Hey! I am new here and wanted to introduce myself!
My name is Clodagh, but my friends call me Clo! I'm 15 and live in Dublin, Ireland! I first experienced River in Stand By Me last year. It was purely by accident, but was one of the best accidents I have experienced in my life so far. After I watched Stand By Me for the first time, I saw how talented River was, and at such a young age, too! I thought to myself 'I should get to know more about this person' but, of course, I forgot! And then, in May of this year, I stumbled upon the movie, again, by accident! And this time I did not forget to look him up.
I remember reading on IMDB that he was dead, and the feeling that came with that information.......It was like a stab in the gut. Even though I had only seen him in one movie, I could see the talent and determination he had. I remember thinking 'Why was he taken away from this world so youn? And how did it happen?' As I read more about him, I was enthralled by his love for animals and his commitment to the environment. Even when I had read that he died from a drug overdose, my admiration for this loving man did not waver.........He was a good man who had made a bad decision.....that is all!
I had downloaded My Own Private Idaho and I Love You To Death and, again, saw the talent of this beautiful man. I have only seen three of his movies, but I listen to his music everyday. He has encouraged me to care for our planet more and has, unintentionally, taught me a valuable life lesson of how to say NO!
I am glad I found this Group, as now I have found people with a common, and wonderful, interest!
I thank anyone who takes the time to read this, and I look forward to talk with you!

Hey Clo! Welcome

I totally know how you feel. I remember quite a few years back when I was discovering River Phoenix, and heard that he was not alive.. it was terribly heartbreaking. I was just really little when he passed (6 yrs), and I could have cared less about news when I was that little.

You fill find on this site there are people filled with tons of River knowledge. It is a fantastic place. Hope you enjoy your time here

Welcome Clo! I have been a member for quite a while now and I hope that you will find it as terrific as I do.

I can totally relate to your feeling when you read of his passing. I had the exact same feeling you had, when I read it. And like you, my admiration for him did not waver in spite of the cause of death.

Again, welcome

Simone
