Sharon R. Thompson: Will vote against easier access
By Sharon R Thompson
I am with Marcia, some don't know when or how to quit...and this will be just enabling them. I know if they want it they will get, but I'm not going to be the one to vote for them to get it so easily.
I grew up with an alcoholic dad, although he gave his life to Christ when I was 12 and quit, those first 12 years I won't forget, he wasn't mean or anything, just seeing the hurt on my mom's face and her dealing with it did it for me.
I have another family member that is an alcoholic, has struggled all their life with it. I have never had any good experiences being around alcohol and won't vote for it as I don't want it to be on my conscious when something bad happens due to alcohol being readily available.
You say, "Oh well it was their choice to buy it or drink, and will get it anyway," and that is a true statement, but it won't be due to my vote helping get it in here. I'll be praying that everyone will make the right choice, it could be one of your family members that is affected in a negative way and let me tell you I wouldn't wish that on anyone. - Sharon R Thompson
