Lights of Hope

Lights of Hope  (5947)

09/30/2013 9:00 AM - 09/30/2013 11:30 PM

Three candles shining in a window, so simple, so beautiful. But on September 30, 2013 a lit candle will not signify anything simple or beautiful. On this night candles will burn bright as Lights of Hope for the 23.5 million Americans addicted to drugs.
It is time for all of us step out of the shadows of shame and stigma, to raise our voices as one by lighting three candles for the end of National Recovery Month. These candles will represent our hope that we can one day end this national epidemic of death
and despair. Join The Addict’s Mom and many other organizations as we light a red candle for those with a current addiction, a white candle for addicts in recovery and a black or silver candle as a memorial to the tragic loss of so many to this epidemic. It
is time to stop blaming the addicts and their families, it is time to stop all finger pointing, it is time to join our voices and look for real solutions. Thank you The Addict’s Mom
