This Saturday, May 7th, there is a vendor fair in Pekin, IL from 9am -2pm at Pekin First Church of the Nazarene. It is to raise money for a walk that will be held in August, that is to create awareness for addiction. That money will be donated to a foundation that provides Naloxone, which is a counteractive drug to help those overdosing from opiods. There are so many struggling with addiction, even on a daily basis. So many have lost there lives to this disease, but there are also so many that still struggle with it. I don’t believe jail is a solution for addicts. There is more to the problem, the putting them in a cell. That will not fix the problem. Going to a treatment center saved my life, but I had to WANT to get and stay clean and sober. Today, I am so grateful for where I am. I love my life, and today I actually LIVE life.
