The girl was short, skinny, sexless and almost ugly. And there was something startling about her.
I stared – the girl’s frozen eyes were wide open. Too wide. And she walked like a daydreamer.
“Is she under a doze?” I thought to myself. “So young! Just a kid!”
I have been hearing lots of stories about drug-related deaths recently. In most cases those are young males. Very often the deaths are occuring when using petrol (gas) as a drug. I usually take note of such cases and forget. Its just a sad statistic, just like the ever-growing number of car crashes.
But seeing a very young girl so apparently drugged on a central street in Yerevan was my wake-up call.
Drug use is growing in this country and something has to be done about that.
