I've only lived here two years. I've never been in any kind of trouble in my life whatsoever with the law and have tried to teach my child to obey the laws, not use drugs, treat others with respect and so on. However, I'm starting to think that moving my child to Brunswick County was quite possibly the WORST thing I could have done in terms of her future. This county is consumed with drugs - and I've learned from friends that it's not uncommon for even the deacons at the Baptist Church to smoke pot. What has scared me the most, however, is having seen how easily young people can get out of trouble if they "know someone" in "high places." As a matter of fact, it's their delinquent friends' parents who are in many of these "high places." I don't know how to teach my child right from wrong when she has already witnessed that it really doesn't matter how you behave if you "know" someone who can get you out of any "trouble" you might get into. It's very disheartening, to say the least.
