I heard on the radio today that a 5 year old girl and her grandmother are missing from Upper Marlboro, Maryland. This is sad, tragic and frightening for the family.
Then I hear that the grandmother is a drug addict.
An entire generation of parents have tried to raise children while doing illegal drugs, and now those addicts are becoming grandparents.
In the recent past, the grandparents have been forced to take up the slack left by druggy boomer parents. Who will raise the children now that the drugged out generation are grandparents?
Hopefully, the parents of these children are wiser than their parents were.
