Heather Roberts, a woman who lost her son in 2012 in part due to his prescribed medications, has suggested that those of us concerned about pharmaceutical harms might observe All Souls' Day by lighting a candle and sending positive thoughts out into the Universe...
…for the protection of all who have been, who are being, or who may in the future be, damaged by prescribed medications;
…for all persons now affected, that they be listened to, taken seriously, and properly assisted;
…for tremendous care to be taken when medications are prescribed, and for immediate and consistent monitoring;
…for this ongoing wrong to be righted, now and in the future.
Because the drug companies seem to hold all the cards, she has suggested we ask the Universe (or God) for a shift, so that goodness, honesty and decency might prevail. I will be doing this out of love and respect for all who have suffered — both the living and departed.
