Alcohol can have an extreme affect on our daily lives! It is not only entrenched in our culture, but is also shaping our future. Its affects include poor economy, an increase of the death toll, and upsets the existence of our children, who are the hope of this future. Approximately 2 million of children live in a family where at least one parent is reliant on or addicted to alcohol. Every day, over 10, 000 children under age 21 take their first drink. Our children are our future, educate them well and end the viscous cycle of alcohol addiction. Let’s help one another to shape our better future.
