Every day we use various social networks to express our thoughts.  Those thoughts range anywhere from the most insignificant and trivial to some of the most poignant words on life and other topics.  One young woman took to Twitter as she turned 21 and thanked “God for another year of life” when hours later, she suddenly collapsed and died.

Ariane Noelle Patterson had no signs of illness when she passed away on January 17, but according to the New York Daily News, she died from a heart attack caused by Lupus.  She had suffered with the illness since she was nine years old.  The college senior was energetic and happy about her 21st birthday when she collapsed during her religion class at Gardner-Webb, a North Carolina christian college.
