They don't care about us - by Sam

Written By Sam, age 16.

My Dad, the heroin addict, has no interest in anyone but himself. 
Mum kicked him out 4 years ago. 
Since then I have seen him in the street but I make a quick divert. I'm not interested and I don't want any contact with him. 
I want to become a speaker in schools about kids who have been let down by heroin addict parents. Losing a Mum or a Dad to drugs is hurtful. It hurts a lot because drugs are so senseless. They don't care about us - their kids.
