A girl in our town overdosed yesterday and died. She was 27 years old. Im sure her parents and her little daughter are heart broken. I do not know what gets into these kids. When I was young and having babies my first thoughts were " please God, let me live long enough to raise these babies". So many have overdosed and just left them for someone else to raise. Its like they dont even give it a thought.
And then I think of all these young girls who are strung out on drugs and raising babies, who do you think is making sure these babies are taken care of properly and getting fed? It just breaks my heart. I just imagine them crying in their cribs for hours with a soiled diaper on and not being fed. I always felt like having a baby was such a blessing..
I dont know about the power of drugs over people, but I do know that they are ruining our country. What would make a young person take something that will make them like a zombie??? What will they be like when they are 40? Will they be able to function? Or will they be burnouts? What will these babies be like who have been raised with a Mom and Dad high on drugs?
As most of you know from earlier posts, my oldest son did drugs for years. He is 39 now and hes slowing down...worried about what he has already done to his body from the drugs. If you would meet him you would think he is a great guy and he usually is....but I have also seen him when he was a raving maniac. Thank goodness I havent seen that side of him for a few years. What can I say? Hes my son, I love him. But he has broke my heart over and over again. I have 2 sons and they are as different as day and night. The youngest son is a corrections officer and doesnt deal well with people who take drugs. But yet my 2 boys are finally friends ,since the oldest one has started slowing down. For that I am greatful.
I dont know why I am talking about this, I usually dont...I guess Im just thinking of what the girl who OD'd has put her parents through. My heart goes out to them. God bless them and her daughter.
