I believe music heals the soul. While it’s no new philosophy, it’s more true today than ever. Alcohol and drug addiction is killing people across our nation and artistic approaches hold a bigger bounty than any traditional means.
The power that alcohol and drugs hold over people is a force to be reckoned with. We should never forget that we are surrounded by former users and recovering addicts. We should fight that power so that people may have a chance to live life to the fullest. It isn’t too late if you are reading this.
The performer in this video, Slick, has experienced the seven circles of hell in alcohol and drug addiction. Fortunately, he has climbed out from that inferno and is singing to us about his experiences. For his effort, Slick and those like him deserve our respect and support. It is no easy journey that he has made from addiction to sobriety.

Tim’s years as a Human Rights reporter have taken on many dimensions; he has rallied for a long list of cultures and populations and continues to every day, with a strong and direct concentration on the 2009 Genocide of Tamil Hindus and Christians in Sri Lanka. As a result of his long list of reports exposing war crimes against Tamil people, Tim was invited to be the keynote speaker at the FeTNA (Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America) Conference in Baltimore, in July 2012. This is the largest annual gathering of North American Tamils; Tim addressed more than 3000 people and was presented with a traditional Sri Lanka ‘blessed garland’ and a shawl as per the tradition and custom of Tamil Nadu
In addition to local news, Tim specializes in writing about political and military developments worldwide; and maintains that the label ‘terrorist’ is ill placed in many cases; specifically with the LTTE Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka, where it was used as an excuse to slaughter people by the tens of thousands; and in Gaza, where a trapped population lives at the mercy of Israel’s destructive military war crime grinder. At the center of all of this, Tim pays extremely close attention to the safety and welfare of journalists worldwide.
