Dear Michael Oden
I don’t think you remember me at all. I was on Probation last year and saw you once because my Probation Officer wasn’t there. Anyways, the reason I’m writing you is because I wanted to thank you. We talked for a long time about my situation with my mom, my ex-boyfriend who was abusive, and my drug addiction.. You gave me the packet “If Drugs are the Answer, what is the Question?”
Well, I wanted to thank you and let you know that because of you and what was in the packet, I was able to leave my abuser and get help for my addiction. I have 9 months clean, today. I’m engaged to a wonderful man and I have a great relationship with my mom today! Because without you I think I would be dead. I didn’t read the packet right away and your words didn’t sink in immediately but you planted the seed. I’m grateful to have met you and spent time listening to your wisdom. You saved my life and for that I am eternally grateful.
Thank you again,
