Another warning for the citizens of Pearland is to STOP SMOKING DOPE AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR CHILDREN. I am so tired of the people of this community not picking up the slack. Everybody there smokes pot and doesn't give a damb about the children.

Dear glory -
Wow and in all caps as well! I learned before I was a teen to not generalize becuase more often than not it is offensive and just plain wrong. Perhaps you can address your next message to doper citizens and unfit parents and not to Pearland citizens because we as a whole are certainly better than the picture you paint!

I am a citizen of Pearland and a mom. I don't do dope or any form of crap that messes up my mind or could interfere with what is best for my family. I also help to pick up the slack in various ways like picking up the trash during Keep Pearland Clean, by tutoring kids with needs , by buying the cops meal who is next in line, and by volunteering even when I am exhausted because I know that being a good role model and contributing in even small ways can make an inpact for the good. We are not all dopers and bad parents. Give us a break and take your harsh words to those that deserve them not the general population of Pearland.
