A Letter from Children to Parents Suffering From Drug Abuse

Drug use in the Cat lake reserve has been a high for a long time. It has been termed as the epicenter of prescription drug addiction in Canada. It is believed that nearly 80% of the adults living there are addicted to oxycodone-based pain killers like OxyContin or Percocets. There have been many measures taken to make sure that people are brought out of the drug abuse, but none of them has benefitted. But it seems that Grade 6 children have come up with a drastic new way to make sure that their addicted parents gets their act together.

In a letter to the members of the Cat Lake reserve, they put out their blunt and painful feelings towards their parents. The letter states, "It hurts us and shoomis and kokum (grandpa and grandma) when you're doing drugs and you're not at home".

Although Governments and local health authorities have tried to curb this ever growing drug abuse, the help hasn't been of any benefit to the children of Cat Lake who have been witnessing this drug abuse for a long time. Point by point they put out their feelings hoping that their parents would understand how they are getting affected by it. Point number five of the letter is as heart throbbing stating, "We feel that we don't know what to do to help you stop doing Drug".

The main aim of this letter is to end the crisis that has gripped their community. Due to such high drug use within the community there have been incidences of theft on a rise. The stability within the community has also been rumbled as the children have been bereft of the stability and support they crave. They only wish for a happy community that they could live in.
