Just a cursorily look into the drug problem in our city will say it is going downhill since 2010.
What have you seen in the last ten years.
Don’t you ever wonder about that siren you hear everyday.
How long has it been since you connected the dots and realized we have a fentanyl problem, a world drug problem, and much more pain and suffering than the public can even stand to hear about anymore?
Becoming aware of the problem is the first step.
That means stop numbing out about it.
Find ways to do no harm to yourself and others.
Then maybe people will begin to help people again.
International Overdose Awareness day is a global event that happens every year on 31st of August.
Their presence was made at the Ministry of Health on Friday, downtown.
Where were you and what are you doing about it?
The answer is non-violent and helping yourself first.
The problem is here to stay and that will be what is commonly called an ongoing problem that will have systemic effects upon society as a whole.
Chances are that you probably can’t even talk about it.
You probably don’t think it is your problem.
And if you do, you probably don’t know what to do next.
Don’t walk away, this is not going to either.
Awareness is key.
Please support the effort.
