The Taliban are killing our Kids here in the USA
That sounds like a radical statement until we realize that the Taliban is the current cartel for the heroin trade coming from Afghanistan. http://2001-2009.state.gov/p/inl/rls/rm/sep_oct/5210.htm Heroin is becoming the drug of choice among our youth. They start by snorting it. Then they smoke it and then they inject it. This is not only happening in the slums of America, it is happening in the suburbs and the upper class homes across the USA.
The war on terror and the war on drugs has become the same war and we are loosing the war. We are loosing our children. According to the NY Times, drug abuse is killing our children at an alarming rate: “the first generation since the Vietnam War years of the mid-1960s to experience higher death rates in early adulthood than the generation that preceded it.” http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/17/science/drug-overdoses-propel-rise-in-mortality-rates-of-young-whites.html
I am praying for our children, for our families and for our country. I will find a way for us to help those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. Please pray that God will show us what we can do to make a positive impact in our community this year.
If you would like me to personally pray for you or a family member who has been affected by drug or alcohol dependency or addiction write to me atRobert@RobertSchullerMinistries.org
Remember that God Loves You and So Do I. He is blessing you through all things.
