My husband Denny is sharing Zach’s dream. Don’t do drugs. Here’s a letter a girl from a school here in this area wrote to Denny after she heard the story of Zach’s life:
Hi, I’m a senior in high school. I seen your post about you not thinking you made much a difference. I just wanted to let you know that when I first heard your story last year, I was a junior and addicted to some really bad things, not long after I heard you, I quit everything. Your story touched me. I never went to a party or let myself partake in anything I knew would be bad for me after that. Around Thanksgiving of my senior year, some people convinced me into going to a small get together, it was the first time I’d been to a party since last year. That night, the small get together turned into a huge party full of really young kids. I went to the bathroom to get away and my best friend and I found a little girl passed out, she had been sick and from what we seen having convulsions, we immediately took her to the hospital where we found out she was in a coma from alcohol poisoning. They told us that we saved her life, 20 more minutes and she would have died. That’s the first and the last time I put myself in a situation like that. I guess I’m telling you this so that you don’t get discouraged, you’re helping more people than you probably realize. There’s not a doubt in my mind that I’d still be in a bad place had I not heard your story when I did. Thank you.
We must do what we can to help the teens in this area, if its just for one.
Zach… your life will continue to make a difference.
