Default Re: The Drinking Age

That statement Meg, actually has some truth to it. I grew up in the Philippines, a third-world island nation in Pacific-Asia. And, especially in the area that I lived in, there was never a lack of alcohol. And growing up around it with all of my other siblings, and relatives, we never really thought much of it. We knew that it could get you drunk and that kids weren't supposed to drink it (even though you could go to any local store and buy some even at the age of seven), but we always thought of it as just a drink, like water or soda pop. And we did have a couple chugs of the stuff every now and again.

But, I'm not quite sure if that kind of use and "abuse" would work in a higher society like the UK or the USA. There might be more chaos because of how the society is much higher and advanced, than that of my community in the Philippines.

In our darkest hour, in my deepest despair
Will you still care? Will you be there?
In my trials, and my tribulations
Through our doubts, and frustrations
In my violence, in my turbulence
Through my fear, and my confessions
In my anguish and my pain
Through my joy and my sorrow
In the promise, of another tomorrow
I´ll never let you part
For you´re always, in my heart.
~Will You Be There~
My favorite song, just makes me all mushy inside.
Oh, and yes. I'm a Michael fan.
