This morning, a body was found in Levittown, PA near the intersection of New Falls Road where the crossroads at New Falls, South Oxford Valley Road and Levittown Parkway meet, during the morning commute. Another overdose. The report was that for people who knew about the incident there was no need for public concern. Rather cold, huh!
Throw a sheet over someone who died, and just continue with the morning commute.
I have to ask, in the words of Bob Dylan, “There’s something happening here, and you don’t know what it is. Do you, Mr. Jones?”
Is drug overdose becoming so commonplace that people are getting used to it? Are we just going about our business, oblivious to what’s going on around us? Are we in denial? By the way, De Nile is not just a river in Egypt.
Most recent report from the Levittown-Fairless Hills Rescue Squad:

There are, however, folks who don’t deny that people are dying as a result of their voluntary slavery to drug addiction. And they want to help!
The 7th Annual Conquering Grounds Music Fest 2019 and Relapse Prevention Walk brought together the faith community, politicians, law enforcement, and everyday people to illustrate ways to bring hope to the national drug epidemic.
Every night of the week, there are meetings where people get together to help one another lick the problem, which destroys lives and causes people to die.
Yes, there is cause for concern.
