I bet you’ve all seen on the news how andrew ‘Joey’ johns (pictured) has been caught with ecstacy on him and then it got revealed that he’s been on and off depressed for years and had a ecstacy addiction for the past couple. And he was playing professional footy. Then of course, as always, there’s the drugs in the afl problem. The un-name able club that has been using illicit drugs. And they’re our role models. drugs are so awful and it makes the situation worse when people we look up to start using and abusing drugs and alcohol. We all know what comes next. Violence. The number of times i’ve walked in to watch the news and there’s been a story on professional sportsmen being in pub brawls and general fights…. it’s sickening. Why can’t they go through life without being idiots? I suppose the media and society in general do make a bigger deal out of it because they’re famous, but so should they. They need to learn that millions of people look up to them and if a little boy see’s (Sp?) his favourite footy player on the news for being in a fight and taking drugs, he might think it’s ok. I think they need to read ‘Being a role model for dummies’…. ASAP!
youth group was really fun last night and i’ve spent all of today doing homework. I’ve got three assignments due in the next week. So much fun. Tomorrow is our town show, which should be good if there’s rides there.
Love and being a good role model,
