Photo courtesy of LifeSteps  The  Mobile Outreach Team, MOT,  is trained to administer Narcan (Naloxone),--a drug that blocks the effects of opioids and reverses an overdose--to patients in an emergency. MOT trains people to use Narcan in an emergency and helps them obtain it from local pharmacies, MOT, or from the TONI project.  

Against backdrops of purple — a color symbolizing hope — the photographs stood as mute testimony to lives cut short.

In them: A 40-year-old man held his daughter, maybe age 2, with a hand pressed to her father’s chest and a flower in her hair. A 29-year old woman faced away from a sunset and smiled. A 31-year-old man played acoustic guitar, his wind-blown hair tossed about.

None of those people will ever do any of those things again. They are among the Williamson County residents who have died from drug overdoses this year. They looked on, frozen in time, and those who loved them looked back in memory, as Williamson County hosted its second-annual Overdose Awareness Day program.
