What do New Zealand and the USA have in common? Read on!

The USA has much in common with New Zealand. Let me count the ways. Yah, nah, as we are alleged to say in New Zealand. I want to highlight a trait that is attacking the fabric of family life in both countries. That is the scourge of 'P' as we call it or you may label it as Ice or Methamphetamine. Whatever the name---the threat is the same. You have all seen the terrible 'scenarios' played out nightly on TV or via your other news links. A homeless man or woman, once a successful business person, or a teenage drop out: perhaps a 'gangster,' ---all have a common 'demon'------'P' or 'Meth.' They may have started slowly but gradually the 'goal posts moved. They needed more and more. They may have started with a simple 'joint' laced with the 'stuff,' but that soon became a more desperate need, until their lives were consumed by the 'master.' They began to live in a 'twilight world,' one in which every moment was consumed by the need to score the next hit. They lost friends, jobs, business and families as those former 'networks became irrelevant.' If a family member spoke out, violence and abuse became a constant companion, the law intervened from time to time, but the journey continued--towards an abyss. BUT---there is hope--if someone tell someone or seeks help, but solution may be dangerous, certainly not one that can be achieved alone! I invite you to read about my 'take' on this vexing issue.
