Letter from a Darien Mother: Former NBA Player’s Powerful Talk Brings to Mind Her Mother’s and Her Own Struggles
To the editor:
On Thursday afternoon my son sent me a text. “Are you going to be home by 7:00?” it said. I thought he wanted me to drive him to martial arts class. As it turned out, he wanted me to drive myself to Darien High School. He wanted me to hear former NBA player Chris Herren speak about his struggle to overcome substance abuse.
