Letter to the Editor: Underage drinking awareness is crucial

As a parent, I appreciate the Sierra Sun had large exposure and awareness to underage drinking and drug abuse through recent articles from the town hall meeting on underage drinking and Shattered Dreams.

The support for these programs to keep the continual education and awareness alive in the community is essential. There is a lot of effort put into each of these community events. I commend everyone involved in these programs and Sierra Sun to help assist in spreading the news.

Parents and kids often look the other way, not thinking itand#8217;ll happen to their kid or themselves. The truth is, many are impacted by potential abuse that leads to addiction, endangerment and possible death. One is too many, even if itand#8217;s not you or your child,

Thank you for saving our teens.
