I work with addicts and alcoholics and

one young man in particular comes to

mind and I'm willing to wager that 95%

of you know a very similar person he is


he's destructive he's manipulative his

action suggests that he has no regard

for others or even itself for that

matter he's been arrested half a dozen


he's lost track of the number of trips

to the emergency room he's been in three

different homeless shelters in three

different states his ability to drive

away the people who love him is

astounding his mother cries herself to

sleep night after night hoping and

praying that someone or something would

intervene well one day her prayers are

answered and probably not the manner in

which you prayed for but nevertheless
