Bat­tling against ice

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - YOUR SAY -

EVERY time I go out wear­ing my ‘Don’t ICE your chil­dren. LOVE THEM’ T-shirt peo­ple stop me and talk. Many peo­ple, some­times. A lot, prob­a­bly three-quar­ters of them, say that they know peo­ple on ‘ice”, or they used to take ice, or they know so many fam­i­lies where chil­dren have ice-ad­dicted par­ents.

I think it has been four women who ended up in jail be­cause of ice.

They had to stop tak­ing ice be­cause of jail time and are so grate­ful they got caught so they could stop tak­ing the drug.

So many sad sto­ries are mak­ing me un­happy.

My ice pe­ti­tion is go­ing slow. On it, three peo­ple have com­mented on how ice has af­fected them — two se­ri­ously, with their own fam­i­lies all but de­stroyed. Chil­dren go­ing through hell.

Please would you con­sider do­ing a story on my ef­forts to stop par­ents tak­ing ice and hurt­ing their part­ner and their most beau­ti­ful price­less chil­dren.

I plan to not stop this cam­paign, I pray never. Dave Vincent, Bid­will
