Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
if people are really concerned about kids in this country doing drugs, they should use common sense and realize that drugs should be legalized and regulated. treat drugs like alcohol and tobacco. right now, it's easier for teens to get drugs than it is to get alcohol. what does that say?
im not buying that its easier to get drugs than alchohol, if kids want alchohol they tend to ask older people to buy it for them. that would happend if drugs were legal too. i think one of the reasons why alot of people stay away from drugs is that they are illegal, if they were legalized there would be a much greater social acceptance which in turn could prove disastrous.
i guess we just view things different, for me, the line between personal liberty and collective wisdom goes here.
