DCXCIII

Do not try this today

Different time

Different upbringing

70’s Fort Lauderdale-Miami drug scene

Father

Raised during Great Depression

World War II

Served under General Patton

Marching

Helping

Liberate

Europe

He loved his boy

One day

He put a hatchet on the kitchen table

Told his teenage son

“If you ever touch drugs I will chop your hands off”

I have never used illegal drugs in my life
