It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

I'm thinking suicide too.  The recent break up.  The pressures of his career.    :'(
But no, come on! This is not right. It is not alright..

Why would he? .. He had Matilda....

Poor little angel. Poor Michelle. Pour Jake. Poor Ang. ... and all who knew him..

Damnit Heath!..

I think I'm going to be sick.  :(

I'm trying to hold it together.  I feel like sleeping!

I have to believe it's an accidental thing! He would hate the media circus this has become & I can't fathom he would not think of how this would affect Matilda. There were so many beautiful pix of the two of them. Tragedy!!!!!
You're the love of my life
And the breath in my prayers
Take my hand, lead me there

I can't forget the taste of your mouth
From your lips the heavens pour out
I can't forget when we are one
With you alone I am free

I was just thinking the same thing.......he would HATE all this media attention.....

I am in Australia, and the news bulletin is ONLY about Heath.......have not seen any other news here for past two hours.......

One thing we can do...

Take one day at a time. Remember to breathe, to eat, and to drink water. Reach out to those who can comfort you; reach out to those needing comforting. Let not Heath's death go in vain...he accomplished something absolutely remarkable in his creation of Ennis, one of the all-time great performances of movie history. Ennis and Jack MEAN something...let's not forget this deep truth. Heath helped bring this truth into our lives, and hearts. Let's keep allowing this truth to transform our lives, and ourselves. Heath is gone, but we're still here. And we can go on living life, and MAKING something valuable from it, as testament to what Heath did so beautifully with his art...and what Jack and Ennis will forever represent in our consciousness.

Very well said, Moremojo.  I'm just glad you're all here to help me make sense of this tragedy!

On tv now there are showing that there is a mob scene outside of his apartment.  I guess there are a lot of us who just don't know what to do now.

I never felt this way for anyone I didn't actually know before.

oh god, i saw the stretcher and black bag, wish i hadn't... i left the tv on, muted it, and walked away

Jenny (Newyearsday) has no internet connection, but she wishes a big, big hug to all of you.


Awful.
