Oftentimes when someone, often a child, is perceived as different or weak, they can too often become a target for bullies. While most bullying occurs in school and in the community when children gather, cyberbullying is also becoming more prevalent as cell phones and social media become more popular amongst younger children.
In today’s world, there’s often a stigma that the world of sports is closed to people with disabilities, but that is not the case. There are many organizations that support athletes with disabilities, such as USA Volleyball.
In 2014, over 21 million Americans age 12 and older battled substance abuse. Tragically, only 1 in 10 with a substance abuse problem receives the help that they need. There’s clearly a drug epidemic in this country. Families are being devastated by the opioid and heroin addiction, but there is hope!
Drug abuse and addiction is a chronic, compulsive, relapsing disorder that almost always requires formal treatment. Drug overdoses have become the leading cause of death of Americans under age 50. In 2016, 62,000 Americans died from overdoses. By comparison, the figure was 4,000 in 1999.
“The time is always right for family. All of us can relate, in one way or another, to the real families in our series. You realize that if you change a name or a face, it could be YOU. Family Comes First® affirms that family and community are the answers. We need each other as we journey together through life.”
