Congratulations to those who participated in The Mike Johnson Memorial Walk for Recovery in Kansas City on September 18th 2010.
Anything that can be done to further the cause of addiction recovery is valuable. In addition, you were able to raise awareness for the problems of addiction which are vast and far reaching.
Since much of mainstream society is a bit ignorant about the problems of addiction, it is good that this walk took place in Kansas City.
I once met a woman from KC who had a deep scar on her face. She told me that her boyfriend was in rehab. It took the car accident in which he was driving and caused the scar on her beautiful young face to get him to wake up to his addiction problems.
If awareness can be raised about the problems of addiction and substance abuse, it would be of great help to society – and to many individuals as well as those who love them.
If even one such similar tragedy can be prevented, then it was worth every ounce of effort that went into the walk and other events like it.
YOU can help, even now! Even though the walk is over, you can add your efforts to the fight for awareness!
YOUR story can help others who are struggling with either the awareness of their addiction or the need to overcome the addiction once the person becomes aware. In addition, your story may help to inspire people who love someone who suffers from an addiction. They need support and encourgement to not give up hope!
