  1. So sad. This is from her brother Rich Radwan on Facebook April 28th at 8:30pm

    ‘April 27th at 2:00 am my sister Renee Radwan committed suicide by jumping in front of a train in Woodstock IL. She had been battling a heroin addiction for the last 10 years. My family and I tried everything in our power to free her from the destructive drug but nothing we did resulted In a permanent fix. In her note to our family she stated she had been clean for three days, only because she could not afford to buy heroin. She was choosing to end her life because she didn’t want to be a slave to the drug anymore. I keep reading that part over and over because I know she wanted to be free but couldn’t breakaway from confinement heroin placed on her mind and body. To the conductor of the train please know that none of this is your fault and no blame lies with you. She made the choice to end her own life. I know you did everything in your power to stop the train and warn her. This has deeply affected me and I can’t believe she is gone. I miss my sister so much and I can’t make sense of why this had to happen. She was the one who introduced me to the world of gaming. We used to stay up late playing Zelda Link to the Past together. Recently I showed her Dark Souls and she instantly fell in love with the game. I will always remember my sister as the kind, loving and adventurous person she was. Renee you were fighting for so long but now your battle is over and I hope you have finally found peace.
    I Love You Renee
    Your Chappie’

  2. Good grief that IS sad.

    And clueless people will still refuse to see the connection the devil has with opening up yourself to damnation through his evil pastimes.

  3. How does a drug from the middle east find it’s way here so easily?

  4. USA Today

    Chicago Nabs Dozens in ‘Traveling Vice Lords’ Gang Linked to Coke, Meth and Heroin

    “One of those arrested, an alleged supplier of heroin and cocaine to the gang, is an undocumented immigrant from Mexico who had been ordered to be deported from the U.S. more than 45 years ago, according to a federal complaint.”

  5. Highly, highly recommend reading “Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic” by Sam Quinones.

    It explains the path of how heroin (and pharmaceuticals) have overcome America.

    While I thought I knew a lot before reading this book, it will school you and leave you shocked.
