  • I am Heroin

    I am HEROIN Anonymous I destroy homes, I tear families apart,  I take your children, and that’s just the start.  I’m more costly than diamonds, more precious than gold,  The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.

Kid Tip: You deserve an equal opportunity, but that doesn’t mean you’re entitled to an equal result

You will see other people working less, making more, and you will get discouraged. Fight that feeling, and…
