I grew up in Childress. Left as a young teenager. Sad to go back and see what a sewer Childress has become. I see the empty faces of my old friends when I return to visit. Most of them are addicted to illegal substances and abusing themselves in so many other ways. I know that this is not the life that they hoped for. I look back and think how lucky I was for the unfortunate childhood that I had that brought me out of Childress...but for that, I to would be one of those empty faces! So to all of my friends I would like to say, I hope that you will find your way out of that pit. There is a better life waiting for you.

Well I am glad that I am helping your prayer life and who couldn't use a few extra prayers even from a stranger! So thanks! But I stand by the fact that Childress is a town hungry for turmoil and destruction!

Well, although I have been gone for some time, most all of my family live there and I dread every time circumstances force me to return.

Childress is just like any other Small Town USA. The drama is what you make of it. If you steer clear of it, you're fine, but there are some who LOVE drama and live for it. But they are some of the best people in time of family crisis and needs.

You are so right. I agree with everything you say. My dad was born in Childress and was raised there with his brothers and sisters. His mom raised 12 children all by herself. My dad told me of hard times but of happy times. I still have relatives there.

Like many of you, I have lots of family in Childress. As a matter of fact my dad (a convicted murderer/felon) was born and raised right there-a by product of that city. It's the "Hotel California" of Texas- you can come in but you can never leave. I have family "on both sides of the tracks" in that town. The only future you have is hwy. 283.
