A Different Bomb

For "Cloud"

This past week a friend of mine committed suicide.  She was a forty-something 
actress, recovering from alcoholism.  Although I am a recovering alcoholic 
myself I knew her best through my work as a fund-raiser for treatment for 
those needing alcohol and drug rehabilitation.  We first met about seven 
years ago.  One day, in an open counseling session at which adult men and 
women of all ages were present, she suddenly revealed her central issue.
