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.

Some Meth Headlines for Today

I find this interesting when I come across just some of the headlines regarding meth in our country. It amazes me that there is a group of people who don't believe that meth is a big deal. I do recognize that the problem of meth runs much deeper than the drug itself. It actually runs to the lost hopes, dreams, inability to cope with issues of each individual. Wrong Choices, wrong directions, and basically not have a true grasp on what life is all about. Kim
