August is the night before the dawn: the month when overdose awareness day occurs (August 31st) before September (nationally recognized as Recovery Month). This month is a time when we can share and grieve and hope with one another that the lives we’ve lost to the struggle of addiction live on through our stories and advocacy and hearts.

All across baseball fields, town halls, and city centers, people will march, hold up pictures, light candles, and sing songs of remembrance.
