Urination (proper word)
By Jacquie Meck


October 05, 2009

Mr. Bolling, you were quick to attack Ms. Elliott's solution to a very large problem our young people share with a great deal of the world, but my questions to you are:

Do YOU have any children?

If not, can you envision yourself with a child(ren) and how you would feel/react if you found out they were in dire trouble (or worse yet, dead, or maimed) as a result of a drug or alcohol problem you were not aware that they had ... because they had always been a "good kid"?

Have you ever done drugs or gone overboard on alcohol? If so did you ever get in trouble because of it - or come very close to it (trouble)?

We were all kids once, we've all done stupid things ... more than once. The lucky ones (me included) got caught right away or came close enough to getting burned that we made a vow to stay away from that fire.

There is an ageless saying: `Don't bring me problems, bring me solutions!' What this means, is quit whining and complaining about drug testing and quoting idealism, putting down other peoples ideas and come up with a good solution of your own and share it with us.

I am VERY afraid for our young people, and you should be too. We need your help and well as that of our whole community.

With Sincerety,

Jacquie Meck
