A Survivor Speaks Out! Letters to a Prisoner by Connie D. contains poems and letters from a Mom to her Crystal Meth addicted son in prison. Although she is relieved that her son is safe from harm and from doing further damage to himself, she is especially angry at a legal system that gives too many second chances, chances that have resulted in over ten years of pain for her family, not to mention the damage this epidemic does to the community. This book is a wake-up call to ALL who choose to ENABLE the Addict!
