I am so sorry for your loss. No parent should have to go through that. These parents that you ask where they are, you should not assume they are not good parents. They are not teaching their kids to drink and drive that is sure. Many of these people, young and old, have addiction problems and are desperately trying to get out the darkness. It is not an easy journey and it is a disease. They do need your prayers.

They need more than prayers. If this is an addiction issue, professional help and a support system is needed. I'm tired of seeing people my age slowly kill themselves because all anyone does for them is "pray" instead of actually provide some sort of real assistance.
