The Tale of the Music

Threw him a side glance. He caught it. DJ made his pick…

He approached. I smiled, shy. The music started…

He offered a drink. I gladly took a swig. The music crescendoed…

His hands embraced. My body swooned, feet Jell-O. The music blared…

His hands roamed everywhere, as the Rohypnol raged on. The music faded…

*Author’s Note:

For this write-up, I had to research the effects of Rohypnol – a popular (can you imagine, A…meaning more than one! *sigh*) date-rape drug, and…wow…suffice it to say,  the things I found out about it, and rape statistics in general (against women, men AND kids) tells me I…every believing Christian, in fact, needs to step up prayers and activities for the salvation of souls. Jesus is faithful…light will overcome…

So, I felt I just had to add the following to this post on a rather sensitive topic:

  • Rohypnol tablets, when mixed with a drink, is odorless and colorless, so you can gulp it, without even knowing what’s going on when its effects kick in!
  • Rohypnol effects are similar to being drunk. Only worse: it’s ten times the power of valium, and it can induce temporal amnesia – you don’t remember what happened during your blackout period, which may last up to eight hours!
    It doesn’t stop there: if combined with alcohol, IT…CAN…CAUSE…DEATH.

People, ESPECIALLY LADIES: though I’m not encouraging paranoia, I certainly don’t advice naiveté. The following tips I found on the web should be of great help, particularly at parties or functions:

  • Be careful or wary about accepting drinks from anyone you don’t know well or long enough to trust. Hey, just because someone else paid for it doesn’t mean you should take it!
  • If you are accepting a drink, make sure it’s from an unopened container, and that you open it yourself. Again, the above applies.
  • Don’t put your drink down and leave it unattended, even to go to the restroom. Where possible, have friends watch out for you.
  • IT’S NOT EVERY PARTY/CLUB YOU SHOULD GO TO!! That seemed obvious…
  • Notify other friends you know about the effects of this dangerous drug.

Don’t be paranoid. Don’t be naive either. Be harmless as doves, wise as serpents. May God guide you.

Thank you for your time.
