    “Wow….your hair is tough.” Those words ran through me sharply. Those words spilled out of my cousin’s mouth as her hand unwelcomely touched my hair, neatly braided in two French braids touched with a finesse of London rain.

“I don’t need help because if I can’t help myself I can’t be helped.” – Amy Winehouse (1983 -2011) It saddens me that another talented performer has left this world.  Amy Winehouse was a remarkable talented singer, who unfortunately was constantly fighting a losing battle with herself.
