Introduction by Richie's Friend

Introduction by Richie Diener's best friend, Lenny Langone:

"My name is Lenny. I was Richie's best friend when his life was taken away by his father. I know how it all went down on the night that it happened. He did not have to be killed. Richie's father was not a nice man. He didn't like any of Richie's friends."
                                                                          
Lenny passed away in 2010. His parents got him help after Richie was shot to death by his father, an expert marksman.

Lenny was successful in the printing business, and became a loving husband and wonderful father.  
Lenny posted a statement on Amazon.com:

You can find comments by Lenny on this blog. Lenny never got over Richie's death. He saw the good side in Richie, and knew that Richie, had he lived, would have overcome drug abuse.

This movie with a message about drugs and addiction should be shown in every High School. 40+ years later, there is no end in sight.

This movie from 1977 is more relevant than ever.
