Fifty

Fifty

A Story by Randy Johnson
"

Dedicated to John W. Brown who died on June 3, 2019.

"
My cousin would've turned fifty today if he hadn't died in 2019. His name was John Brown and he was born on September 9, 1970. He would've been on this earth for half a century if he hadn't died. He died because he used drugs.
John started out smoking pot and later started doing worse drugs like Meth. All John cared about was getting high and chasing women. He had the habit of finding the wrong kind of women and doing drugs. If he had said no to drugs, he'd be alive today.
When John came to my house a few years ago, I knew that he had been doing Meth. I said to him "You've been doing Meth." He asked me "How did you know that I've been doing Meth?" I replied "Because of the red dots on your face."
I have the following question to ask. Do you want to live to be fifty or older? If your answer is yes, I have some advice. STAY AWAY FROM DRUGS. and if you're already doing drugs, STOP DOING DRUGS. You most likely won't make it to be fifty if you do drugs. Drugs kill and that's a fact.
A few years ago, I once went to church with a twenty-seven year old man. He died shortly there after of congestive heart failure. He did drugs and ended up not being as lucky as John. He died before he reached the age of thirty. Please remember what I said. Stay away from drugs.
