This year I lost my friend to drugs. He was a normal kid like you and me. He loved sports, family and friends. He didn’t have a problem and was not prone to addiction, he was just looking to have a good time.
This letter is coming from someone who learned the hard way that we are not invincible. It has come to my attention that current students at my high school are beginning to employ synthesized drugs like Xanax and Molly and combining it with excessive alcohol, just for a good time. I urgently implore you to talk to your children so we, as a community, can put an end to these extremely avoidable tragedies.
