"Let's Talk"

Love our kids from the enemy, we will win!

I am really being burdened by all the gun violence taking place in our schools, in our neighborhoods, in our shopping malls and I don't know what I can do as a citizen to be proactive. The problem seems to always be associated with drugs, so the question would be, do you think it is the guns that is the problem, or is it the drugs triggering a person to use the weapon? I have heard so many people say that weed doesn't affect you to do such horrible crimes as murder, or affect a person to much, but if that is the truth why are a majority of shooters on a drug at the time?

My heart goes out to parents who have to fight to save their children from the harm of drugs, but fighting a losing battle many times. We want to place blame somewhere and why not to the parent some might ask. I really don't think it is so much a parents fault for not being able to stop a child from making a choice to start smoking weed which many times end up using something more harsh. Many of these young adults are lonely, depressed having a loss of hope. That does not excuse the fact that they have no right to take anyone's life for any reason. What it means is that family and friends get tired of dealing with the drugs not the person. Then the user start to feel like no one loves him, or he is all alone so what's the use. That is the lie of the unseen substance speaking into that person's spirit, not the family and friends of that person. I want to suggest just for a person who is dealing with someone who is smoking, doing drugs or drinking. To remind him that you love him, but you don't love the drug and when he is on a drug the person they love is no longer present, the drug or alcohol takes over.  If they are wandering about over friends and you don't see your child for a day or two pick up the phone call them and just let him know you were thinking about him. Lastly, let that person know that they will always have a place to go even if they are on a drug and you have to call someone to help you to be safe or get the person to a safe place.

The kids are feeling hopeless in this world, it is not like it used to be this is a new generation with more than past generations had to deal with, as long as we don't let our children and loved ones know how much they mean to us, the evil spirit of drugs and alcohol will continue to grab them. It's hard I know, but it is a job we signed up for when we had these kids. If you received a phone call that your child was killed or died you would be devastated, don't let that happen. Let's expose the darkness of drug and alcohol abuse by facing it head on, and then we might see some progress in a different direction.

Great topic! I know in the part of the country where I live we are seeing an epidemic of herion users and does appear that crime is boosting up! In my opinion I believe it is a combination of drugs and people having guns who shouldn't. There are more shooting taking place in schools,colleges and places where there are more young people than ever before. I think we have to educate our own circle of friends and family, try to connect with the youths and let them know they are included in a family, and loved. That's my opinion, once again a great topic and I hope others will join in on the conversation

Where gun violence in everywhere in the schools, Shoping mall and the neighbours as an individual person we didn't have anything to do. But in our own stand point we can do whatever the possible solution we might have
