Heroin and Opioid Epidemic


I apologize, in advance, for the wording in this post. But, this disease requires some tough words.
 .
This disease has touched the lives of so many people in my part of the country. Daily, we see the stories of addiction and overdoses in the newspaper and on television. Those addicted, have names and faces, they have (or had) families. Some of my friends have lost members of their families to this epidemic.
.
No, I don’t have the answers. Addiction to anything is a VERY difficult road. I pray that users can come clean. And, that those thinking of using, walk the other way.

“You know, I’ve seen a lot of people walkin’ ’round
With tombstones in their eyes
But the pusher don’t care
Ah, if you live or if you die
God damn, the pusher
God damn, I say the pusher
I said God damn, God damn the pusher man”
