Did you know that 25% of all drug overdoses in America comes from heroin
The latest numbers from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention show that one in four drug overdoses in 2015 was related to heroin. In 1999, just 6% of all overdoses were related to the drug. When looking at overdoses overall, opioid-related deaths represented the majority.

Comment from @chakabars : "I thought about what the Belgians did from 1885-1908 where they halved the population of Congo from 20 million to 10 million. All for the production of rubber, (for the rubber tyre that had just been invented in Europe) and wild Ivory. We don't speak of King Leopold the II as the devil that he was. But yet we do Hitler.
What happened is they set up military camps and railways (went to see them yesterday) to get the rubber from Congolese jungle, to the coast, on to ships and into Belgium. This is what made Belgium rich. The Belgium army Enslaved the Congolese people. They had to meet rubber Quotas so they would kidnap/hold hostage the women, so that their husbands would meet the rubber demands, as the soldiers would get bonuses.
They had to reach a target every 15 days, if they failed to meet the targets, they would cut off the limbs of the women and children, but keep them kidnapped, raping them all the while, to make sure the men gathered enough rubber from the forest for the Evil, sick Belgian demons. None of them ever went to jail and in some places in Belgium today, you can go to "fine chocolatiers" and buy dark chocolate and milk chocolate hands... Don't think it got much better 1908-1960 that's why Patrice Lumumba made the speech that got him assassinated, by the CIA, French and Belgian after the Congolese people elected him. The Belgians haven't apologised to this day... Watch a documentary on YouTube called: White king, red rubber, Black death."
#animaltotemfriday Snake. offers healing and transformation. It's ability to glide into the darkness through crevices in the rocks connects it to the Under World, and the realm of death. It is the totem animal of the Earth Goddess, and also the Sky Father/Sun God, and represents our ability to die and be reborn. The energy that enables us to be born on earth is sexual energy, but this also necessitates our death.
Befriending power will enable you to journey through life gracefully and magically, shedding your old life easily when the time comes - whether that old life be of the physical body or a stage in this present incarnation.
The urges you to abandon the ability to wound and to replace it with the power to heal. Although the is poisonous, it also represents the ability to transmute and transform negative energy into healing power. Through we can learn to love and channel the serpent power that flows within each being, and help it become life giving energy for all. (Image by @mamamooncandles) #WhatsYourAnimalTotem?
