OUR existence and the future of the next generations is under threat from drugs. All children are in the direct line of fire.
They are being targeted from a young age either to participate or peddle to their peers. The future could be bleak and uncertain as the next generation falls more and more into the clutches of drugs.
We can no longer ignore the fact that most kids experiment with drugs at one stage of their lives. Some are lucky to get out before they get hooked. Others are not so lucky and slip into a world of darkness and decay, a world that eats you up alive and forces you to steal and cheat to feed your habits.
Reeze Telling shared his story ("'Churches must help fight crime'" (October 2). It's a story that needs to be told. It's about decay, no hope, death and destruction, and a family torn apart. It's sad and inspiring.
He is extremely fortunate to be alive to be able to share his story of hope. All of us need to believe in the miracle of hope.
He is indeed a ray of sunshine and a beacon of hope to addicts. We can only hope and pray that the youth respond to the message.
Say no to drugs. It's your right to say no.
