Letter: Focus on heroin crisis

To the Editor:

After having one older friend who was practically my brother growing up end up in prison for selling heroin and two family friends dead after using, I truly feel that McHenry County, possibly the state as a whole, or maybe even the entire country, should focus much more on the heroin crisis going on behind the scenes. It appears that anything happening because of the heroin crisis, if added at all, is an afterthought in any news or media being published.

I would have thought that there would be much more outrage and attention toward the seemingly most massive problem happening in McHenry County, and I would like to ask the Northwest Herald to focus more on this problem so that it can get the attention that it deserves in order to lead to the end of these heroin-related incidents.
