Today's Community Memorial and Vigil Meet Up

We had a great talk at the proposed site of the rehab and treatment center here in Martinsburg today. We can still picture the rehab on the site that will help the local addicts come for help and to recover.

Thank you to Mr. James Boyd and David Manthos who is running for WV Senate for coming. We missed Mrs. Laura Boyd today! I love your spirit Laura. It is contagious!

We still have a ways to go before this treatment center is a reality. We know that. But it is a great
feeling to just talk about it. We also have some work to do.

We know we still have work on the petition. I am trying too hard not to celebrate. We have 545 signing and supporting it but we know we still have more work to do before May 12th. Thank you to those signing and supporting and a great big thank you to everyone who continues to share this petition.

We talked about the reasons people are not signing the petition. In case you missed that post, you can read it here @ Reasons Why People Are Not Signing

I consider going to the ballot box and voting as Silent Protest. We discussed how important it is to vote and how important it is to hear from the candidates running for office what their view and opinion is on the Heroin Epidemic here in Martinsburg, WV and where they stand. Thank you to those candidates who are sharing.

To those who couldn't make it today but were there in spirit, thank you!

We will not be meeting at the site next Sunday due to the Stomp Out Addiction Event.
