America’s Drug Death Capital
Sunday morning (Sept 18, 2016) I woke up and checked my iPhone. I don’t normally do that…in fact, I’m strongly opposed to doing that. However, since I upgraded to IOS 10 before falling asleep I wanted to see what was different on my phone. The new IOS seems to make checking the news a lot easier.
Somehow I ended up reading the CNN article about Heroin in America by Story by Wayne Drash and Max Blau, CNN. I couldn’t get through the story without crying.

I apologize for the sniffles, I tried to pull it together for the podcast but there are parts that are just too sad. I hope that you’ll help me spread the word. We’ve got to do something about the heroin epidemic.
You can read along with me by going to the CNN article on heroin in Huntington, VA here.

Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
