Trying to get the word out about Facebook Support Groups

This is something I wrote as an Addendum to a story contest; it will probably kick me out of the running as far as winning but it may help get The Addict’s Mom some notice: Also if you have prayer requests feel free to join Somebody’s Mother Online Prayer Support Group:
They say seven people a day die in the State of Florida because of addictions. That doesn’t include the stories of the brokenhearted mothers who die without being reunited with their child. Or the stories of the ones gone astray who try but just can’t seem to make it work, as far as family relations, even clean and sober as the drugs and street life have so changed their brain, they never feel loved again. This is just one story of many that come from the streets of Daytona. Daytona where serial killer AileenWuornos roamed trying to find peace for her tortured soul, Daytona where the homeless hurt and are hurt and sometimes murdered just for sport. Daytona where a home for prostitutes could not stay funded and sometimes corruption is found in places that you would not imagine. Daytona where the souls of women that no one seemed to care about cry out for their murderers to be found.
I wrote parts of this story a long time ago, as a mother going through family pain. At that time there were not Facebook Support Groups such as The Addict’s Mom to give comfort, aid and help to mothers of addicts. The Addict’s Mom has over 2400 members as I write this and I only wish it had been there for me, way back then. Now prescription drug abuse is overtaking our nation and women are arising trying to take back control of their lives. Detaching in love, while hurting as mothers, we stand. I hope you felt the emotions of this Daytona Street Story. Ask me again, I may have another one for you.
