Dear fellow students, Today is 26th June, the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. It is a day when all nations are expected to work together to fight against drug abuse. It is reported that over one million people in China take illegal drugs and the number is still increasing. Worse still, a large number of them are teenagers. Once addicted to drugs, its difficult for you to get rid of them. Many drug takers lose their possessions or families in order to obtain drugs. Some even commit crimes and end up in prison. As high school students, we must know the danger of drug abuse. We should try our best to help those who need help. We should stay away from drugs and value our own lives. Dear fellow students, for the benefit of ourselves, our families and the whole of society, lets start right now and spare no effort to make our life better!
