Not All Christmas’ Are Merry

Needle And The Damage Done

Needle And The Damage Done

If you look closely at this picture you will notice the syringe in his right hand. It’s empty. Based on his grogginess for the few moments he became semi-coherent enough to flush out the needle with some water he had stored in the remains of a pop can, I assume he was either on heroin or one of the other mind altering drugs people sometimes turn to when they can’t manage life, drugs that can, and frequently do, consume life creating an almost living death. I am making a big assumption here but I doubt very much his Christmas will be as merry as the one I get to share with my family. To quote my mom, “There but for the grace of God go you.
