Center for Public Advocacy. How to advocate?

4.Communicate with your elected officials by writing letters, making calls, or visiting their offices. Ensure that your elected representatives are aware of:

This is an issue that holds significant importance to you and other concerned voters. Untreated addiction has a direct impact on nearly 70% of the Indian population, depleting resources and taking a heavy toll on individuals. Addiction is a disease that does not discriminate, affecting people from all walks of life. Finding a solution to this issue relies on well-informed and bipartisan actions.

I like a man with faults, especially when he knows it. To err is human - I'm uncomfortable around Saints. —Hugh Prather.

We often find comfort in the company of someone who acknowledges their flaws and is self-aware. We respect such individuals. But when it comes to admitting our own faults, it can be a challenging process that unfolds gradually and requires effort. The resistance to confessing our mistakes might stem from a fear of feeling unworthy. However, when we do admit a fault, the result is often a sense of inner peace and increased self-respect. While we may anticipate judgment or rejection from friends, in reality, our friendships tend to grow stronger when we acknowledge our imperfections. A genuine friend doesn't require us to always be right; they simply value our honesty.

In the present moment, is there a fault that's been nagging at us? Have we communicated with someone in a way that doesn't sit right with our conscience? It's essential to remember that our journey is one of progress, not perfection. To make progress, we must be willing to recognize and admit our imperfections. As we do so, we become more authentically human. In these moments, we can seek guidance: "God, as I grapple with my human mistakes, help me remain open to your love."
