I thought heroin addiction had already hit home with everything my family has been through – but it just keeps on punching – and punching- and punching. Addiction hides everywhere; it stalks from gutters to mansions and from middle schools to the workplace. I wrote down my thoughts after heroin took the life of one of the boys from my old neighborhood. When my son Kurt read ‘Heroin. Stop the Silence. Speak the Truth. Start the Conversation.’ he suggested I post it. That was the birth of this blog.
It is time to Stop the Silence. Please share my words if it helps to Start the Conversation. I am amazed every day at how Kurt is finding his way out of Addiction one day at a time. I learn something from him every time we speak.
Thank you for reading,
