This is dedicated to Travis Holappa who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered on July 25, 2004 in Northern Minnesota. This was all due to meth. I am Travis' mother and I wish to make this devastation turn into a better thing by educating and exposing the truth about meth, the dangers, and the deadly consequences it brings about to individuals and communities.

I want to do what I can to educate people about what is going on around the world with the meth problem. I want people to know about it BEFORE they even get the idea to want to try it. It is a dangerous drug and will ruin your life as well as all those who love you. I am on a mission on behalf of my only son, Travis.

He was convicted by a jury in September of first-degree murder and using a firearm to commit a felony. Allen was found at his home in Valley Township in January 2004, killed by a shotgun blast.

Can't we help these people before they get to this stage in the drug scene? There just does not seem to be a word that actually describes the devastation this drug in injects in our lives! Kim
