    A friend asked me, ‘Why didn’t we have a drug problem

    when we were growing up?’

    I replied that I had a drug problem when I was young: I was

    drug to church on 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 also 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 pastor, 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. I was drug to the

    homes of neighbours to help mow the yard, repair the

    clothesline, and if my mother had ever known that I took a

    single dime as a tip for this kindness, my dad would have

    drug me back to the woodshed.

    Those drugs are still in my veins and they affect my

    behaviour in everything I do, say, or think. They are

    stronger than cocaine, crack, or heroin, and if today’s

    children had this kind of drug problem, this world would be a better



    One of best replys that i have read so far .


    Yes Pome. Wish I had written it! Sometimes I just relay what is sent to me.

    We didnt have to be drugged to do those chores when younger,  it was just expected of us to do them. and if not done, then you were in real trouble.
