I had a dream.
Ask not whay your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country...

Growing up under the influence of leadership inertwined with inspiration, the leadership required for the assimalition of todays cultures is lost.
Looking at the local schools, their mission and problems, the success is lack luster.

That being the case, the children are mesmorized by the glean and sheen of the drug world, moths to the light.

The gangs replace family, and society consumes TWICE the illicit drugs we consumed five years ago.

Now the failure of Mexico, the cartel takeover, signals a threat beyond comprehension.

With the enemy at the gates, there is no recognition of the dire consequences by our politicians. These quacks are focused on their personal benefit, prancing about as if they are more important than GOD.

One president says he didn't inhale, another was a drug dealer.

With THAT KIND of LEADERSHIP our destiny is murky at best.

Our destiny, like water, is murky at best. However, these same waters began as drop of rain that starts out clear and pure so everything does go full circle. Don't lose the faith, It is all good from here on out.

The treatment centers SHOULD BE IN THEIR parents home!!!! Make these parents responsible for their children`s actions!!! What happened to the CURFEW LAWS????Curfew time should be changed to, no children outside their home after 8pm. That should apply to TEENAGERS as well.I am not along the border here,but I see children and teenagers still out after 11pm,even during school days.Parents should have to pay a hefty fine if their children create any problems.Parents should serve the same consequences as their kids do.Maybe then they will be responsible.

I agree with you -------abc from LA it does start at home but being next to a border town you see alot of poverty for lack of education so drugs is the quick buck for those kids and parents it takes no brains to deal or use.

Be carefull with what politicians and goverment officical say. I bet somebody would benefit from the extran funds the goverment is willing to provide.
Cuentenme otra. There are drug deals all over this country and there are also drug addicts all over this country.The fact remains the same: somebody is asking for money.
