This article, I decided that it should be dedicated to Micheal Row. Michael died this week at the age of 18 from meningitis. I suppose you were probably expecting a nice, funny article for a bit of a giggle.
Sorry to dissapoint you.
Meningitis effects younger people more. The bacteria that cause it are present in everyone's nasal cavities. Don't worry, I am not going to give you a little lesson on biology. People should just be aware of the symptoms, which are very similar to a really bad flu, vomiting, headaches and drowsiness. It kills very quickly indeed. Micheal Row became ill Tuesday afternoon and was dead by 6:00 the next morning. Meningitis is a serious problem that we should all be aware of. If you dont care, what kind of human being are you? Remember that you are made of flesh and blood yourself. Some people fail to realize that they are not immortal, when even a mere papercut can be extremely painful.
