A new journey begins

As I type this note, my son is on his way to Palm Springs, California, to hopefully get the treatment he needs to start his life anew. If you're so inclined to do such things, please say a prayer for him tonight--or even right now--and whenever you might think about him. Or light a candle for him. Or both. Michigan to California is a long journey. But my son is a wonderful young man who has a long journey ahead of him. I hope he believes in himself and embraces this opportunity for change.

Special thanks to Ken Seeley and Jeffrey Seltzer of Intervention 911 and (especially) Britt Bonner and Foundations Recovery Network. You are all angels my wife and I didn't know existed. And to the staff at Michael's House: Please take good care of my son and guide him in his recovery. He's a great kid who just needs some help finding his way.

Thank you all for your support. I love you all.

And I love you, son. Here's hoping you can rest your heavy head tonight on a bed/Of California stars.

Fingers crossed

Something good may be brewing. My fingers are crossed. Please cross your fingers, too. And, if you're so inclined, say a prayer for my son and my family.
