“The most important way we can honor Rachel’s life is by acknowledging the role we all have in changing the laws that took her life. Rachel’s Law is a great start, but we still have a lot of work to do. There continue to be thousands of casualties of the ‘drug war’ in this country every year… from families ripped apart by incarceration for minor, nonviolent offenses; to youth who fall into addictive patterns of drug use because of our failure to really educate them properly about drugs; to the millions of people affected by the violence in Mexico because of the power of illegal cartels. We as a community need to stand up and say that it’s not okay for beautiful people to be stigmatized and for precious lives to be lost because of what anyone chooses to put into his or her own body!”
