Equalizer by Davenit Equalizer by Davenit
This is one of those shots that no one will get if I don't explain it. Well, maybe some would but I'm guessing most wouldn't...

I read an article recently about the drugging of our children. Ritalin, Lythium, etc... It seems like kids can't just be kids anymore without the pharmaceutical companies trying to make a buck off it.

Yeah, they help some, but let's try to remember that children are a hyper kinetic bundles of energy and just because they act that way doesn't mean we need to drug them down to a coma state.

Drugs have become the great equalizer and it's a shame.

Well, enough of my ramblings... Enjoy.

I know what it is like that. If you want so I am one of "them". But now I don't take that junk any more. It's sometimes hard but I feel better without and I think I'm not that bad at keeping myself in balance.
Perhaps is that the reason why I love your related pictures. I can identify myself with them. Keep on the amazing work!

Wow, gorgeous! The description is so true, too. Have a hyper child? Play outside with them! Exercise more! They'll be happier for it. Unfortunately, we can't have THAT in classrooms, so off to get drugged up we go!

I love the shot, but I just wanted to say one thing--
I'm thirteen years old and I was diagnosed with ADD when I was nine. Before I was put on medicine, it would take me hours to do a homework assignment that *should have* taken me ten minutes. Sometimes, I'm not even motivated to do the things I love when I'm off of my medicine.
Not to mention that I can't just grow out of the hyperactivity. Just imagine being thirteen and having brief moments during which you act like you're seven!
So...it's not about the "pharmaceutical companies trying to make a buck off it".

When you say 'equaliser', I think of like...music players and how you can...adjust -stuff- as you please...and that's kind of what the picture looks like~
