Eva Holland of Cincinnati has posted a picture to Facebook, along with a lengthy explanation HERE, that has drawn a lot of attention over the last few days.
Her husband died of a heroin overdose. He went to rehab for his addiction to painkillers last year, but a toothache months later led him right back down the wrong path. He died on September 2.
Eva is trying to raise awareness about the dangers of addiction, and how drugs like heroin can ruin lives.
“I’m sure this photo makes a lot of people uncomfortable it may even piss a few people off but the main reason I took it was to show the reality of addiction. The cold hard truth is heroin kills. You may think it will never happen to you but guess what that’s what Mike thought too,” she wrote.
She claims strangers have approached her on the street where she lives, thanking her for what she’s done.
Do you think this odd family photo accurately conveys a message warning others about the dangers of drugs, or is that message drowned out by the fact that a happy smiling family is standing next to an open coffin? Before hearing Eva’s explanation, many who saw the photo though she was just a twisted person!
