I didn't have the pressure that kids have today. As a grandparent of a teen and a tween the world out there scares me. They and we need all the help we can get to keep them safe. Thanks!

As an individual who has been around, lived with and witnessed addicts first-hand for a majority of my life, I have to say that there are many valid points to this exhibit, but some extremely dramatized, though not outside of the realm of possibility.
