I have been to Rikers Island, Souhwoods Correctional Facility, the Ocean County Jail, Samaritan Village, countless rehabs, Day Top, etc. I have walked the streets of Alphabet City searching, and all this because of heroin. But I am not a user, I am a big brother - to Dana and to Jason. Heroin doesn't discriminate, it doesn't care! I have a criminal record yet have NEVER been arrested - but my identity has been used because we can pass for each other. H has ruined the chilchood for my siblings and is now ruining the childhoods of their kids, who are being cared for by our parents. Theft - been there, had that happen. Conned - that too. Have also had to search flophouses to make sure they have eaten a meal. Heroin is tearing at the underbelly of OUR fair communities. Heroin is the JACKAL! We can only love and hope that THEY learn to help themselves before they can help others. Dealers and the cartels deserve the death penalty - either through the judicial system or the barrel of a gun!
