Down through the ages, men (and women
too) have often carried "monkeys on their backs."
In addition to the new breed of long-tailed
primates pushing drugs, we still have the old
conventional, but just as deadly, apes of alcohol
tobacco, greed, hate, fear and lust.
Each new generation has the responsibility
to protect and warn their children concerning
the dangers of these monkeys.
If we do not adequately prepare our children
to defend themselves against these chimps,
our children may eventually find themselves
up a tree.
