Henry's Story

I’ve written a lot over the past few months about the tragic early death of Henry Louis Granju.  That story is now going to be told on television.  If you aren’t local (or, like me, don’t have t.v. in your home–yeah, right!), you will be able to watch it online after it airs next week.
Katie and her family are so generous to share their private pain in a public way because they hope to save lives of  other beloved children.  Henry came from a good family, he was loved, his family tried everything to help him.  If  it could happen to him, it could happen to any child, and that’s terrifying.
Remember, this is what a drug addict looks like:
