The David Lewis story was so important to the treatment and recovery of bay area addicts, inmates and struggling ex-cons, after his death the  California Governor offered a $50,000.00 reward in July to find his killer.  Many mourned his murder.  David Lewis not only showed that prison rehab can work after  20 years of his own incarceration; the center he started helps 4600 bay area addicts each year.    He started the ground breaking drug treatment program, Free At Last in East Palo Alto.  David Lewis was a Hero.   He showed the world the courage needed to take on addiction in and out of prison.  One single person with a brutal past can make an amazing difference.  Imagine what we can all do together.  Links by Marcia.
