The sad thing is that no one cares when a poor black kid gets hooked on drugs. No one cares if the mother has money to get treatment for her child. No one cries for the Maddies of the Black community. No one cares about the pushers who bring drugs around and into the schools that our children attend. Addiction is a disease that affects Blacks, Whites, Hispanics and every nationality. I have seen so many black parents who worry about the schools that their children have to attend. Please society wake up Drugs are stealing the minds, health, and lives of all our children. Please Mr., Miss, FBI, CIA, Mayor, Police Chief, Pastor, Leader....lets come together to make certain that all of our communities are free from drugs and that our kids have safe places to go to get comfort when they are in pain, lonely or depressed. We need places that our children can go to for leisure and pleasure. We need safe place for them to get educated.
We as a society need to protect our national borders and our community boundaries from drug cartel gang members that bring all poisonous drugs to our community. In addition to cleaning up our neighborhoods, we need to recognize that the damage has been done and we need medical solutions that are affordable and effective for all parents and children who need treatment. A parent should not have to fight in shame and isolation for the life of his or her child. If we can fight to protect the rights and liberty of individuals on foreign soil, we should be able to fight to protect the lives of our children. Instead of condemning Arun, we should be supporting him, praying for his recovery and finding ways to help others who struggle everyday to overcome the mistakes of their past. I hope that this article will help parents to come out of the denial or shame closet and work together for a solution to the horrible drug problem. I would hate to see middleclass and upper income families have to experience the pain and suffering of African American families. For year these families have had to identify the bullet riddled bodies of their children. They had to hold the lifeless bodies of innocent bystanders and young children caught in the crossfire because of this disease. If Gambit would take the time to interview some of those families, we might rush to find a solution to the heroin, crack, cocaine, and marijuana problems. Please everyone lets focus on treatment. If you dont seek other alternatives in addition to incarceration all of the problems in low income neighborhoods will become yours.
