I have an extremely difficult challenge ahead trying to convince people that not “ALL” addicts are evil and that they deserve to be given a chance to recover. But I will never stop trying. Because I “AM” living proof that the majority are GOOD people who just made wrong choices and are victims of the addiction ‘disease’. We need to be saved and not condemned.
Understandably because of traumatic personal experiences and horrible crimes reported in the news, we cannot help but wish these scums of the earth all die. Until it happens to be YOUR loved one.
Remove ALL drug addicts in the world…would that mean murders, rapes and crimes will cease? Of course not!
I do NOT defend the actions of those who do commit heinous crimes as they have to pay for the consequences of their actions. Many of my friends and family have been victims as well. I am out to remove the stigma from society branding ALL addicts as evil.
‘Ako po ay hindi masamang tao. Ako po ay nakaligtas sa matinding kapit ng droga at ngayon ay tumutulong lumaban sa droga.’
And many in society including politicians and business tycoons are “silent” survivors of addiction but are now productive and responsible members of society.
What would have happened if we had all of them killed?
Thank you Jesus
