The Other Side opening April 27! (Oh and Jimmy Kimmel joked about it last night!)

Hi friends and family!!

I can honestly say that I have never written a story that has gone on to become a joke on late night TV!!!

I think I have finally written something that people care about! Please visit ChicagoNow and read my Bittersweet post today. (link below)

The story of how these young men came together, through the defeat of their drug addictions and alcoholism, is so cool, encouraging and hopeful. It’s actually quite refreshing.

And their efforts are so heroic I’d say, when you think how we live in such a sad time, when day after day, we hear of yet another young person dying from a heroine overdose, or going to jail because of something to do with drugs. Stories of kids – my kids, your kids, our kids- causing irreversible life-long damage to themselves is all-too common.

These guys somehow beat the odds and their new sober club opens April 27 in Crystal Lake.

Parents love them and the town supports them. They have gotten tremendous press coverage, and oh, did I mention Jimmy Kimmel joked about the club last night on his show!

There is a wall in their club dedicated to friends they have lost in recent months to drug overdoses. They keep their photos up as a reminder of what their true altruistic purpose is in this life.

Please visit Bittersweet and read about how it all began. Please let me know you visited, like, comment and share! It is worth your time to read how these guys did what they are doing!
