    This may or may not come as a surprise to alot of you, but it will probably hit you
    as hard as it hit me. I am not a writer nor do I know anything about the graffiti
    scene, just that Willy loves it. It continues to be something that he dreams and
    talks of. Not to reveal alot of information but I knew this would be an easy way to
    let people whos emails I don't have know.
    He is alive, although he tried to kill himself over the week, his parents went to
    Philadelphia to pick him up and get him. Apparently from reading his writings and
    knowing him closely for years this was going to happen. We are all just very lucky
    he made it through, but now comes the hard part.
    I know he loves and respects many of you,you can write to his email:
    [email protected]
    or if you know his parents number give a call. I am sure he would be appreciative.

    I think he has made an impact in alot of people's lives and is having a rough spot.

    Thank you for listening.

    tidied up a bit of the incriminating stuff, I sincerely wish Willy a speedy recovery and a long and happy life.

    .......:( .......

    i dont know really what to say, i was just wondering where he was the other day.....im floored....after reading his posts about the nyc economic summit and his feelings on political and social issues throughout my time here, i began to think that this guy was one of the good ones, that he could change something, small or big, but make it just the same....im sure he'll pull himself back up, this will make him grow and still evoke those changes....i dont know him at all except from here, but it hurts just the same....best wishes boxcar....

    sorry you had to drop the news hearts, but thanks just the same....

    i need to go get a breathe of fresh air....

    get better.

    we get one chance at this here thing called life.. we all need to constantly push ourselves to accomplish the things we want to do.. be this in any way, graffiti, art, sports, politics, etc.. don't stand for bullshit in your life, if something is hurting you or bothering you, get the fuck away from it... if your job is making you crazy, quit that shit. dont live life suffering, make all changes that are necessary.

    on another side note.
    generally depressions come and go, ive had several of them, some more intense than others.. alot of the time your friends, family, etc. are gonna tell you to go see a pyschologist/psychiatrist (sp). More times than not if youre feeling "depressed" you will be told that it's recommended you take medications.. whatever it be, prozac, celexa, etc etc. Stay away from this bullshit. You're fully capable of getting yourself out of a depression without any bullshit drugs. I took them for 2 years, and they do nothing but fuck with you.

    damn, this really hits me, just the other day i was looking at the piece he did in the journal, and i was amazed by it, he has so much talent. and was always a cool ass guy. i hope for a good recovery.

    and boxcar, dude, dont give up when times are hard, weve all been through them, and hard times come and then they go. i sincerely hope everything in your life will work out for the best
    good luck and godspeed.

    Man just yesterday one of my teachers shot himself in the head, somehow the bullet went through his brain, but did not kill him, he actually recently has been able to talk. I really dont get why people try this shit, if they would just realize the impact it had on the people aorund them..

    I wish boxcar the best of luck, and I am happy to say that i am verry happy he is still alive, i only have talked to him on aol for short periods of time, but he told me of his trip to India. smart guy, good luck man. Glad your still here.

    and to channel zero it goes.

    I'm hoping someone that is friends with boxcar can post an update on his health. I'd like to know he's doing good or out of the hospital.
