…how many more?

candles

I received yet another notice this morning from yet another mother whose 28 year old child  overdosed and died last night.  I’ve lost count, just in my small area, just in this past year. My daughter is 28 and still battling – every death notice takes another little piece of my hope.

How many deaths will it take before we have an all out sustained push for whatever it takes to stop the heroin epidemic? To remove the stigma?  Whose kid has to die before attention is paid?  How many more?
