I think it really sounds funny hearing 50,000 Japanese yelling “Cocaine”, maybe it’s just me. Enjoy!

Serious Drug Problem

27 Jan

In one of my recent posts, I mentioned people with a drug problem in our area committing crimes. I was reminded of something I read that was cute but at the same time profound so I borrowed it to reprint here.

The other day, someone read that a Meth Lab had been found in an old farmhouse in our county and he asked me a question,”Why didn’t we have a drug problem when you and I were growing up?” I replied I had a drug problem when I was young. I was drug to church every Sunday morning. I was drug to church for weddings and funerals. I was drug to family reunions and community socials no matter the weather.

I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults. I was drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents, told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not speak with respect, spoke ill of the teacher or the preacher, or if I didn’t put forth my best effort in everything that was asked of me.

I was drug to the kitchen sink to have my mouth washed out with soap if I uttered a profanity. I was drug out to pull weeds in mom’s garden and flower beds and cockleburs out of dad’s fields. I was drug to the homes of family, friends and neighbors to help out some poor soul who had no one to mow the yard, repair the clothesline, or chop some firewood, and, if my mother had even known that I took a single dime as a tip for this kindness, she would have drug me back to the woodshed.

Those drugs are still in my veins and they affect my behavior in everything I do, say or think. They are stronger than crack, cocaine, or heroin; and, if today’s children had this kind of drug problem, America would be a better place. God bless the parents who drugged us as children.

Have you drugged and hugged your children today?
