*This notebook will be on display at the Inuit Gallery in Chicago! Mid-October 2014 – Mid-December 2014*
FOUND by Ry in a parking lot in Pacific Beach
This caught my eye. I could see words written on the paper, but didn’t think too much about it. When I returned to my bike, it was still there. Curiosity got me, and I picked it up. The first line shocked me. I read on in disbelief about the hardships this person has endured because of their addiction. I felt so bad for this person, despite the fact that they chose to try heroin. I felt I should share this letter with the world, in hopes that it can prevent someone else from going down this horrible path. If nothing else, it makes you realize that your life isn’t so bad after all. If this doesn’t make you NOT want to try heroin, nothing will.

“While working at a grocery store we found what appears to be a teenage boys journal. Other pages contain short stories that are unfinished and extremely ridiculous, children’s book ideas, lists of things he wants, and randomly his social security number and 1 drawing.” -Danielle
