Re: “Guest Commentary

I know this family tried everything from tough love to unconditional love. Only Carlos could change Carlos and Carlos didn't make it this time. Everybody who knew Carlos had a piece of themselves die when we lost Carlos. Addiction has been around as long as people have roamed this earth. As as American , I shake my head at our political approach to drugs. The war on drugs has been a total failure. We can't even keep drugs out of jails and thats in a very controlled environment. US and NATO troops guard the poppy fields in Afghanistan and we are told we must do this since it is the only source of income for this country. The result is a flooding of the world market of heroin and opiate products. Heroin deaths in this country are spiking as a result. Take the massive profit out of these drugs by legalizing them and promote the product for what it is--------DEATH. The market place will kick in and find a high for the addict that doesn't kill the users/buyers.

I'm not sure if there is an afterlife that people experience when they die. I hope there is. I hope Carlos was met by two of his Grandparents that showed him a place of peace where Carlos could live without the pain he experienced here. Oh God, how I hope.
