Something to ponder

This morning I listened to two testimonies from two men who were drug addicts once, they had been in jail and drug rehabilitation centres before. They have been clean for more than twenty years now. One have gone on and started a centre not only helping drug but also computer addicts to those with HIV. The other is a successful businessman. They have shown that it is not the end of the road after the downfall. As I listened to them, I couldn't help thinking of those who are still addicts. Don't they want to be free from this addiction? And to think that it is so easy to catch hold of drugs today, I fear for my nephews and nieces. They are still young and what if they do not try to resist such temptation, what would happen to them? Drugs are so easily available nowadays and last month there was an e-mail being circulated which stated that one of the latest type of drugs come in the form of sweets whereby it can easily be bought anywhere. Their target is school children. They will first offer the sweets for free to the children and children, especially girls love sweets and I can see where this is heading. I truly, truly fear for these children. We wonder what the authorities are doing in allowing such things to happen. Some say that they are busy doing what they are not supposed to do while some others say that they are busy concocting ideas on how to topple the people who have been elected by the people to represent them in the country. They seem to have got their priority all mixed up. Well what more can I say.
