Letter: OD crisis needs a dose of spirituality

Some youth are deprived of hope because they do not know about the love that God has for them

To the editor:

It is indeed sad, and frightening to read the article about drug overdoses not slowing down in spite of all the efforts to contain the epidemic. Sometimes countries fall into moral decay and need a good dose of spirituality to bring them back to health.We know how secular society has become. It is not cool to talk about God or his commandments. Some youth are deprived of hope because they do not know about the love that God has for them.

Dr. Corneil wants to know how much society will invest in treating this epidemic. A good place to start is in the home with parents who model and passionately live their faith and pass it on to their children.
