When Will People Learn?

My son’s best friend, A.S. got busted for possession of marijuana and if that isn’t enough, possession of an illegal firearm too. After all the trouble my daughter got into last year, you’d think he would’ve been smarter. Now he has a couple felony charges hanging over his head and his life will be ‘on hold’ until he gets everything resolved. He may end up with jail time, drug court or probation and maybe all 3.

When I talked to him, I told him that every choice we make will effect the rest of our lives. One wrong choice can ruin our lives! He says he’s done with all this; that he has learned his lesson. I hope so.

It really hurts my heart when the people I care about make such bad mistakes. If they would only listen! I managed to make it through high school without succumbing to peer pressure. I never tried drugs and even now would never try drugs. Why can’t people see what drugs can do to a person? Is a high so important that they will risk their health, their lives and even the lives of those around them?

I just don’t get it. I probably never will. When will people learn?
