Every week it seems there is another story about a dangerous meth lab in a neighborhood.
Does it make you wonder why we did not have such bad drug problem in our day?
You may recall a different drug experience in our past…
I was drug to church on Sundays and then to Grandma’s for dinner after.
I was drug to family reunions and on family vacations. I was drug to my room, to clean it up, and drug to the kitchen to dry the dishes after dinner.
I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful toadults, or to the sink, to have my mouth washed out with soap if I uttered a bad word.
I was drug inside after school, to complete my homework, and drug off the playground if I brought home a bad report card.
Those drugs are still in my veins and they now affect my daily behavior, thoughts and beliefs. They arestronger than cocaine, crack, or heroin; and, if today’s children had this kind of drug problem, ourcountry might be in a better place. God bless the parents who drugged us!
