Drugs

What is something you wish everybody in your community cared about?

I wish everyone would care about drugs. Not taking them, I’m not supporting these substances, but taking care not to acquire them. You can get really messed up. When I look at some of my neighbors and see what it has done to them, I just feel so upset. Upset that they can’t fight the addiction to the end, or won’t even try. Upset that even after numerous messages about the crack houses or weed houses, or whatever, the cops still don’t come. Upset knowing that these people who I have known since I was little are still taking drugs, and that they probably will be when I get into college, when I earn my degree, and probably even after I get home to an empty, new house. Can’t they just be aware of the fact that they get skinnier and skinnier, waste away. That their hoodies pour over them now, and realize that they have to stop. Waste away till death, or pick up the rescue signal and start over. How can they not see the damage I see?
