This is Linda Cobaugh. She lost her brother, Mark Johnson to drugs. He was shot and killed over drug money.[Blogger refuses to let me post the photo...Click Here to see a full-size image on my photoBlog.--TP]
This is only one of the hundreds of people who have been harmed by drugs at the "Stop The Harm" Flashlight Vigil last night at City-County Plaza in Asheville, NC.
For me, this lady represents the hope that we can stop the harm. We can save people from drugs, we can save the families, the communities harmed by drugs.
The flag she holds represents all that is good about America, and hope that together we can do something about the problem.
I will keep you posted on further activities planned by the Asheville Buncombe Drug Commission, and hope to see you at next year's vigil!
