I read the news today "Oh-Boy." Another tragic story, among a bunch of other horrible articles; child abuse, sexual assaults, sex trafficking, child abductions, juvenile robs store. Are we, as a nation, becoming desensitized to the fact that we are loosing the children of America? The media fails to report that heroin use is at epidemic proportions among adolescents. Can we simply ignore this as it does not impact "our family," or our relatives?" Can we just continue to assume that the government will take care of this problem, and thus ignore it? I think not. We can all act either directly or indirectly to put a stop to this and the others problems. One group that I feel strongly works very hard to save American children is Focus Adolescent Services, I have spoken with their Director several times over the telephone. They run an informative web site and a free national help line. They do not take money from the government. They depend on you and me for a few dollars or a few hundred or a few hundred thousand depending on how much you have in your pocket and how strongly you feel about the loss of out greatest asset. For those of you who live in Brentwood and have a child with this problem call them and get help.There is hope. Ignoring the problem will not make it go away. The only shame is in not acting on the problem. For those of you in Brentwood and elsewhere, with the bucks stand-up and write that check to them or any other group who you feel is making a major difference. Save our little kids.
