March 23, 2018  -  User Showcase Song - Middletown

In 2016, over 64,000 people in the US died from opioid overdoses. ( painkillers, heroin, fentanyl) To put that number in perspective, that’s more Americans killed by opioids in 365 days than were killed during the entirety of the Vietnam War. Opioids in America are more than a crisis, they’re a national emergency.I read an article recently in the USA Today about the opioid crisis in Middletown, Ohio. Having lived some of my childhood in small Ohio towns, I had a connection to this type of town. I sent the article to Bud Merritt and then dove right in and started writing. He sent back some lines that formed the basis of the second verse and first pre chorus. Janice then added her brilliant harmony. Thanks to all that listen and comment.
