Whereas over 26,000 citizens die from the effects of drug abuse each year; Whereas the damage from drugs is not limited to drug abusers; the collateral damage from drugs is enormous, and drug abuse costs society over $60 billion in social costs and lost productivity; Whereas drugs rob users, their families, and all Americans of dreams, promise, ambitions, talent, and lives; Whereas drug abuse affects millions of families in the United States; Whereas the stigma of drug abuse and the cloak of denial keep many individuals and families from dealing with the impact of drugs; Whereas many friends and families are ashamed to acknowledge the death of their loved ones caused by drug abuse; Whereas all Americans can benefit from illuminating the problem of drug abuse and its impact on families, communities, and society; Whereas the futures of thousands of the Nation's youth have been cut short because of drug abuse; and Whereas law enforcement, public health and research organizations, community coalitions, drug prevention outreach organizations, individual parents, siblings, friends, and concerned citizens are joining together on June 8, 2006, in a Vigil for Lost Promise, to call public attention to the tremendous promise which has been lost with the deaths of those affected by drugs: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That Congress supports the goals and ideals of the Vigil for Lost Promise day. Passed the House of Representatives June 6, 2006. Attest: KAREN L. HAAS, Clerk.
