If there is ever a chance for you to see former Boston College and Boston Celtic player Chris Herren speak, go. Don’t think about it, go, and take your kids. I can guarantee you that you will thank me.

From his Hoop Dreams Website:

As reported by numerous media outlets, Chris has struggled with substance abuse for much of his basketball career. Drug-free and alcohol-free since August 1, 2008 Chris has refocused his life to put his sobriety and family above all else. He attends meetings daily to support his substance free lifestyle and often speaks before groups trying to overcome addiction to share his experiences and road to sobriety.

Herren was riveting for almost 90 minutes. His message is one every child but, more importantly every parent needs to hear.
