During the day, I have my scanner on as “background music” in my office and the number of “heroin overdose” dispatches for the Cincinnati Fire Dept. is mind boggling. It seems that an hour can’t go by without at least one and this morning, while doing some reading, I heard four within one hour. In the time it took me to create this post, there have been two dispatches for heroin overdoses within the City of Cincinnati.
Ohio made the national news with this sad story, just the other day, Parents die of suspected heroin/Fentanyl overdose, kids find bodies
A county just to the North of us had five, heroin related deaths in 26 hours last weekend. Some of the smaller coroner’s offices are running out of space to hold the bodies and are looking to funeral homes for help with temporary storage.
What in the world is going on and is it happening everywhere?
Blues musician, Paul Thorn asks the question.
Robbin’ and shootin’ and rapin’ and killin’
Bloody murder, molestin’, runnin’ airplane into buildings
Everytime I turn around somethin’ else is goin’ wrong
Hey hey hey, tell me, what the hell is goin’ on?
Scared to read my paper, can’t watch T.V
The world’s gettin’ way to crazy for me
Everytime I turn around another poor child is gone
Hey hey hey people, what the hell is goin’ on?
Keep your doors all locked up real tight
Don’t let your children get outta your sight
Oh boy, the good old days are gone
Oh somebody please tell me, what the hell is goin’ on?
