Advocate for what you care about.
I had the honor to sit and talk with some wonderful people this week and I am excited to continue the conversation. People with such passion and love in their hearts, they have the courage to stand up for what they believe is needed. We all know there is a horrible health crisis in our country and in our local communities. Addiction does NOT discriminate, addiction is so powerful and will change a person and tear apart families and communities.
The growing rate of deaths from this crisis is growing so fast, treatment is so difficult. We have to continue to stand together and fight this crisis. We have find ways to slow and hopefully stop the deaths. To many lives are being tormented and then when trying to get help they have to battle the stigma associated with addiction. Their families have to hide as they try to get help.
Be an advocate for what you care about. Do it in a positive way, show people that you care and why you care. I believe that our hearts are large and opening them is powerful. I also believe that everyone can make a difference, every single person can make a difference. You may think it is a small thing you are doing, but you can be have a huge impact one another person.
Advocate for something you care about, something that is close to your heart. Show your heart and speak the truth.
Sometime you won't realize the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.

Sitting with them and hearing the passion and love they have for others and their desire to want to help is just so inspiring.
More to come about this and how we can advocate for others and your causes.
