Awe In Shock

Shock.
Do electrodes firing bolts to the brain help?
Shock.
Do warning labels make a difference?
Shock.
Do audio recordings sound the alarm?
Shock.
Can body bags save a life?
Shock.
Do testimonials stem the tide?

Lost.

Tragedy.
Lives lost to drugs…
Tragedy.
Lives altered by drugs…
Tragedy.
Life’s irresponsible acceptance of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco…
Tragedy.
Government thinking shock is the way…
Tragedy.
Education afraid to show shock’s minimal value…

Common sense.

Misplaced.
The focus on shock…
Misplaced.
The goodness from those living with tragedy…
Misplaced.
The acceptance of drug interventions other than enforcement…
Misplaced.
The responsibility and consequence of having choice…
Misplaced.
Dollars towards a war with no end…

Sad.
