Getting the Word on Opioid Abuse Out Via Music and the Written Word

The dictionary defines peace as “freedom from disturbance; tranquility,” “a state or period in which there is no war or a war has ended.” 

To find such a place of “peaceableness, harmony, accord, concord, amity,  goodwill, friendship, cordiality, 
nonaggression, nonviolence” – the synonyms in the same dictionary – is what good souls and common-sense minded people strive to achieve.
The easiest thing to do is to give up, just let things happen as they do. But that’s not good enough for an enlightened society where John and Yoko preached in 1969 “All we are saying – is give peace a chance.”

How do we do as Lennon instructed in his song?  By books, videos, music spreading the positive message of love, peace and happiness, more than just waving a flag, rolling up the shirtsleeves and making it happen.
