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.

Living in a society of cheaters (Washington)


It’s about finding the right chemical to solve your problems.

Humans naturally want to improve themselves, but that hardly excuses the unnatural ways we go about doing it. Most people agree that Barry Bonds’ baseball achievements are less impressive with an asterisk. There is something about it that most of us find morally repugnant.

As with many issues, the soul-searching occurs when you go to draw the line. Is plastic surgery wrong? Is taking creatine supplements akin to steroids, even though it’s naturally produced by your body? What about makeup, contacts or braces?

There is a difference between vanity and need, but even that’s an unclear distinction that people have always pushed to their own advantage. This timeless aspect of human nature is especially observable in the epidemic of illegal prescription drug use.
