Celebrating every event with alcohol is a tradition in many families - that belongs in the past! Things that are past down from our parents for generations - just because? We need to learn that NOT all of them are good. Someone commented on a post and I thought- he is so right !- Dr.s -We were raised watching television shows that glorify them - we take what ever they say as the 'Word'. We trust them, the past few days you can not pick up a paper without reading about many Dr.s who were lied to by the makers of Oxycodone - They told Dr.s that is was less addictive than other medications. The makers LIED, now people are dying, overdosing and on a rush to stock up before they make the pills into the new - gel type - that is not as easily snortable ! WTF? There is a SERIOUS abuse problem with these drugs. The "NEW & IMPROVED OXYNEO" pill will be just as bad: http://winnipeg.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20120301/oxycontin-oxycodone-replacement-health-120301/20120301/?hub=WinnipegHome Chances are my son would have been taking them if not for his Cannabis. It is time we moved past - traditions, habits even opinions or values that are outdated. Educate ourselves - learn to trust our gut.
If you must "pass the torch" of something .. let it be of good things. Knowledge - a desire for reading, peace, kindness, courage, HOPE. xox <><
