Where there is life, there should also be love.

Mike Dacy’s new book “Jonathan Behind Blue Eyes” (published by Balboa Press) is about his son, Jonathan, who was severely addicted to pharmaceutical medications, but was nonetheless following his path to God, before his death.

This haunting book, which includes Jonathan’s personal journals, describes the impacts of his actions on both himself and his family, and the steps his family took to help him as the tumultuous final period of his life unfolded. After his passing, the family’s individual attempts at healing are conveyed, followed by the gifts of life’s lessons that were inspired by Jonathan’s journey.

An excerpt from “Jonathan Behind Blue Eyes”:

“Actually, he seems mentally ill even beyond the drug addiction, in my opinion….even when he is ‘normal’ he has such strange behavior, the shoplifting issues, inability to think straight or concentrate, even short term memory of something that was just said or that he said to someone else. His behavior seems very bizarre and so sad, like a little old lonely man just walking aimlessly around, talking to anyone and everyone about nothing…it is alarming and shocking…”

“There are two messages Jonathan teaches in the book,” Dacy says. “The first is awareness. He makes us aware of what it is like to have a severe addiction problem and its effects on both himself and his family. The second is what we should always remember as we travel our paths, ‘Where there is life, there should also be love.’”
