Over the weekend, I learned from seemingly reliable sources, that in a small neighboring town/village 30 students had been expelled for drug use from the medium size Elementary/Junior High School, during the last year.
We had heard such things from the regional large Senior High School, but now the small Elementary/Junior High!
I find it extremely sad and frightening. What is our youth coming to? With all my praying, talking, cell-phoning and text messaging, effort into child rearing, I have a hard time figuring out where my children are. My children have had rarely any friends from stable families. The young adults are always hanging out unsupervised and with people whom their families don't know. There is a lot of sleep and joy lost over worrying about them.
