On a Serious Note

Im going to stray a bit form my usual light, crafty, posts and post something a little more serious. I came upon this video and was touched by the power behind it.
No matter your religion or beliefs it's hard to deny the powerful message that is being given. Many people are effected by drugs, porn, ect. and not just those that are the ones actually doing these things. Family members, friends, are effected too. I've seen far too many families that have lost a loved one as the result of drugs. The addiction is too strong for lots of people. I love in this video when Jeffrey R. Holland says "the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. So watch your step." This hits me hard. No one ever starts something wanting to be hooked or wanting their family torn apart, all it takes is that one step. That first time.
I posted a DIY a few months ago and I was thinking hard what I wanted it to say. I didn't want the usual "Always kiss me goodnight" or something else that has been done before. I wanted it to be powerful and really make you think every time you look at it. I'm wanting to make a smaller version and I think I found what I want it to say "I will give place no more for the enemy of my soul"
Again sorry for the seriousness of the post but I just was so touched and wanted to share with everyone.
