I had a drug problem when I was young.

I was drug to church on Sunday mornings or whenever the church doors were open.

I was drug to church for weddings and funerals.

I was drug to family reunions no matter the weather.

I was drug to the bus stop to go to school every weekday.

I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults and teachers.

I was drug home by my parents when I was somewhere I was not supposed to be.

I was drug to the office and got a paddling by the principal when I misbehaved at school.

I was drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents.

I was also drug to woodshed when I was caught trying to smoke or take a sip of beer, whiskey, or the like. Guess what I did not want that anymore


Those drugs are still in my veins; and they affect my behavior in every thing I do, say, and think.  I learned manners and respect on these drugs. I remember each time that I was drug somewhere, I remember many times kicking and screaming I did not want to go, but today I thank God that I had parents that drug me to the places I should have been. I thank God  for the love and respect I gained from each time I was drug to somewhere I did not want to go.  I wish that today we still has this kind of drug problem and not the kind of pills and dope that is running so strong today.


This drug problem is stronger than cocaine, crack, or heroin, and if today's

children had this kind of a drug problem, America just might be a better place.
