Imagine my surprise hearing disturbing news

Not once, but twice this week, I heard two most devastating things, I thought I'd never hear. Two completely separate families that I used to work for years ago, have informed me of their children's involvement with drugs. Not just experimenting, but one teenage boy in particular has been admitted to a drug rehab place. I'm in absolute shock, as I remember this boy innocent, and I wonder where he took the wrong turn. Apparently he was introduced to drugs at the age of 11...which is even more shocking. Another girl, is now having to go into a private high school, because the drugs are so bad at her neighborhood school. Another shocker...but news flash to her parents...drugs are in private schools too...there's no escaping it. How sad. How terribly sad.
