    The other day, someone at a store in our town read that a
    Methamphetamine lab had been found in an old farmhouse in
    the adjoining county and he asked me a rhetorical question.

    "Why didn't we have a drug problem when you and I were growing up?"

    I replied, I had a drug problem when I was young:

    I was drug to church on Sunday morning. I was drug to church
    for weddings and funerals. I was drug to family reunions
    and community socials no matter the weather.
    I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults. I
    was also drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents,
    told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not speak with
    respect, spoke ill of the teacher or the preacher, or if I
    didn't put forth my best effort in everything that was asked
    of me. I was drug to the kitchen sink to have my mouth washed
    out with soap if I uttered profanity. I was drug out to pull
    weeds in mom's garden and flower beds and cockleburrs out of dad's fields. I was drug to the homes of
    family, friends, and neighbors to help out
    some poor soul who had no one to mow the yard, repair the
    clothesline, or chop some firewood; and, if my mother had
    ever known that I took a single dime as a tip for this kindness,
    she would have drug me back to the woodshed.

    Those drugs are still in my veins, they affect my behavior
    in everything I do, say, or think. They are stronger than
    cocaine, crack, or heroin; and, if today's children had this kind of
    drug problem, America would be a better place.

    God bless the moms and dads who drugged us.

    I am thankful I had a Mother and Father like this!
